Here’s my picture with some of my O’Reilly books! I always wonder how they pick the animals for the front covers.

Great picture, you must like you O'Reilly Books! The reason that they have animals on the front is down to Edie Freedman, O'Reilly's Creative Director. Being of a non-Unix background, she found terms such as sed and awk exotic. One day she came across a collection of 18th and 19th century engravings featuring animals, and immediately associated sed and awk with a pair of lorises. Since then they have been using them.
