I wanted this book to be a tribute to the birds Jonathan writes about with such precision, ingenuity, love and wit. So I modeled the colors after those of the Prothonotary Warbler, images of which I use for the half-title and title pages. I also liked the idea of the reader having to “hunt” for the book’s author and title, since, as Jonathan writes, “warblers are restless, hard to see, and give you a crick in the neck.”
