The covers for the Australian editions are GORGEOUS! I like them much better than the North American editions.... :( Oh well. :D And copy editing! Brings me back to my undergrad days--I did a minor in editing, and always thought it great fun. :D
Also, Steph, the font looks like they took the font Zapfino and modified it a bit. It's definitely in the Zapfino family...do a google image search for "Zapfino" or "Zapf Chancery" and you'll find similar fonts (although definitely not the exact font) that are a bit easier to read!
