    does anyone know if there's a font that matches the cover to "where the sidewalk ends"?

    This is not the/a Bookman. And financially seen that is the good news, The bad news is that I can not find this thing. Apart from the swashes, it floats somewhere in between a Garamond (likely a URW one), a Cushing and even Century Old Style (specially the s), all manually slanted, and none matches.
    This is a bad day.

    There is a good chance that you will not find the exact font. Designers and Illustrators like Shel took the time to modify font designs to accommodate their own book design. You may find the font for the copy inside the book but the Title on the front cover was most definitely modified.
