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


Access Cookbook, Second
Edition is a northern tamandua. The tamandua is also known
as the collared, or lesser, anteater. There are two species of
tamandua: the northern tamandua (


Tamandua
mexicana ), found in Central America and the northwestern
part of South America; and the southern tamandua (


Tamandua
tetradactyla ), which can be found further south. Tamanduas
have coarse, yellowish, or brownish fur with black markings and are
about half the size of their rarer relatives, the giant anteaters
(


Myrmecophaga tridactyla ). They can grow to be
about 60 centimeters long, with a prehensile tail of approximately the
same length, and reach weights of 6 to 13 pounds.


Tamanduas are occasionally found on the ground, but they prefer
living in the trees, where they hunt for ant and termite nests. Like
all anteaters, tamanduas have long snouts and extremely long tongues
that they use to collect and eat their prey. Since no teeth are
necessary for this kind of meal, anteaters' teeth have been reduced
during their evolution. However, unlike the completely toothless giant
anteaters, tamanduas still have some small teeth remaining (which are
useful for consuming the fruits that supplement their diets). They use
the sharp claws on their front paws to open ant and termite nests, but
they are careful to not destroy the nests completely and take just a
small portion of the colony before they go for the next nest. This
strategy preserves the colonies for future feedings. Tamanduas are
primarily active during the night and sleep through the day in hollow
trees or the forks of trees, securing themselves by wrapping their
tails around branches.


Reg Aubry was the production editor and copyeditor for


Access Cookbook, Second Edition . Darren Kelly,
Genevieve d'Entremont, and Claire Cloutier provided quality
control. Julie Hawks wrote the index.


Ellie Volckhausen designed the cover of this book, based on a
series design by Edie Freedman. The cover image is a 19th-century
engraving from


Cuvier's Animals . Emma Colby
produced the cover layout with QuarkXPress 4.1 using Adobe's ITC
Garamond font. David Futato designed the CD-ROM label.


David Futato designed the interior layout. Julie Hawks converted
the files from Microsoft Word to FrameMaker 5.5.6 using tools created
by Mike Sierra. The text font is Linotype Birka; the heading font is
Adobe Myriad Condensed; and the code font is LucasFont's TheSans Mono
Condensed. The illustrations that appear in the book were produced by
Robert Romano and Jessamyn Read using Macromedia FreeHand 9 and Adobe
Photoshop 6. The tip and warning icons were drawn by Christopher
Bing. This colophon was written by Rachel Wheeler.


The online edition of this book was created by the Safari
production group (John Chodacki, Becki Maisch, and Madeleine Newell)
using a set of Frame-to-XML conversion and cleanup tools written and
maintained by Erik Ray, Benn Salter, John Chodacki, and Jeff
Liggett.
