Body text is Monticello, a remarkable font which shares an intimate history with Thomas Jefferson, and which was probably the first font created in the United States. It was revived in the 1980's by Matthew Carter, who also created Georgia and Verdana. Headers are in Chisel Regular and Monotype Script Bold.
The page borders were taken from the title page of Schonberg's Atlas of the United States, 1867. The logo is adapted from Davis' New Commercial Encyclopedia, 1909. The manicule is from the wanted poster for John Wilkes Booth, 1865. It is unusual in that it shows the thumb in a raised position, like the hammer of a revolver.
