Kauffer was a perfectionist, yet he almost always insisted on hand lettering the type. The result frequently brought a quirky irregularity to his designs. Ulysses was a familiar title to many Americans, and Kauffer recognized that the name, rather than an illustration, would be most powerful. He elongated the U so that it rises and fades into the top edge of the cover. The blue L guides the eye downward toward the remaining yellow letterforms.
