Nobody answered Chad on this one. I'd be interested in knowing this as well. 

Anybody have anything?

My question is: has anyone else seen silver gilt on any other G4 binding? Or, was it maybe aesthetics - the book is bound in ocean blue boards, with a sky-blue top stain and bands, and "white" gilt - maybe for the "White Whale"? Or, have I just been spending too much time looking at it?
