    The very Swiss Akkurat is an odd choice for a book specifically about the United States. One of the American gothics, such as Franklin, News, Titling, or Knockout (used here only on the maps) would be more appropriate. Otherwise, this is an attractive volume — especially the illustrations by Cristóbal Schmal.
