Colophon

Our look is the result of reader comments, our own experimentation, and feedback from distribution channels. Distinctive covers complement our distinctive approach to technical topics, breathing personality and life into potentially dry subjects.

The animal on the cover of Writing Excel Macros with VBA, Second Edition, is a blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata), a vociferous, aggressive bird common in the eastern half of the United States and southern Canada. The blue-crested jay is also an agile flyer and occasional nest-robber. The term “blue jay” is also applied to the Steller’s jay (Cyanocitta stelleri), a larger, darker jay common in much of the western U.S. and Canada, as well as several other species.

Blue jays eat primarily nuts, seeds, and insects, sometimes planting acorns in the ground, thus helping tree growth. Known for their loud, harsh, and easily identifiable calls, blue jays (related to crows and ravens) often spoil the hunting forays of other animals by warning potential prey.
