Hamelman's Bread - 2nd edition cover

June 7, 2012 - 9:24am -- yy

Hi everyone.

Just curious what you guys think about the new cover for the 2nd edition of Jeffrey Hamelman's Bread. The first edition cover is below on the left and the second edition cover is on the right. I know this isn't directly related to bread, but I figured there are quite a few of us who have opinions on aesthetics.

To cover or not to cover

I remember growing a starter over 20 years ago and abandoning the poor thing. Now I am older and wiser and want to make another go of it all. I have been reading these related threads til the wee hours and have yet to find an answer to my remaining question before I get started.
When you are feeding your young starter and it is setting out at room temperature do you cover it in any way? Loosely? With paper towel? Plastic wrap? Or tightly as with a jar lid or a plastic food storage container?
