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 JavaScript Application Cookbook is a hippopotamus. A native of several regions in Africa, the hippo makes its home in rivers and their bordering grasslands. Hippopotamus is Greek for "river horse," and these large, cumbersome-looking animals move gracefully through the water for much of the day. Hippos leave the water to eat at night. Their vegetarian diet consists mostly of grass, up to 150 pounds a day, as well as some water plants and fallen fruit. Full-grown hippos have no natural predators other than humans, who have hunted them for their ivory tusk-like teeth, for their hide, and for food. Hippos can live to be forty years old.
