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 Webmaster in a Nutshell, Third Edition, is a crab spider. Like the crustaceans after which they are named, crab spiders walk sideways or backwards. They feed on bees and other pollenizing insects, often lying in wait for their prey by hiding on flowers. Some species of crab spider can, over a period of several days, change color from white to yellow and back again to blend into the flower on which they are sitting. The spider grabs its prey quickly with its forward-facing legs. It then injects its victims with a fast-acting, highly poisonous venom, in order to protect itself from the bee's sting.
