Moral lessons aside, this is an interesting typographic lesson, too. Normally I would moan that Optima is too weak and ambiguous for a topic like this, but these two covers prove that sometimes the typeface isn’t as important as color (the yellow pops!), placement, and simplicity — both typefaces work equally well.
Also a lesson on the abuse of Photoshop drop shadows in the 1998 version.
