Design Notes: Author JoAnn Levy obtained permission from the California State Library to use ‘Indian Woman Panning Out Gold,’ from Hutchings’ Illustrated California Magazine, Vol. III, 1859 on the front cover. The title font is based on the Clarendon font registered by Robert Besley and the Fann Street Foundry in 1845. Inside, rather than using formal sections in the chapters, Levy used quotations with page breaks to break up the lengthier chapters.
“Looking for a formatter? Lucky you for landing on this website. I knew nothing, needed everything, and Joan delivered, above and beyond. Responsive, professional, patient— knew what to do, how to do it, did it, and followed up. Lucky me. Only surprise was her fee: less than it should be.”
