It does look a bit low….might be the font.

 

Looking forward to this title as well very much.  Any news of a publication date, please?  I think the hyphen is set to align with the font in lower-case, hence its looking wrong 'when all about is upper'.  As an appalling compositing pedant, if you could get it corrected it would please me greatly.

Suddenly occurred to me there could be another hyphen in "INTER-CITY", depending on how '1970's' Mr Gibbs wishes it to be.  I think it was in the 1980's it became all one word, with a Swallow.

However, the book looks interesting.

The hyphen was dropped from Inter-City in March 1985 when it became InterCity.

 

The swallow and the INTERCITY typeface were introduced from 1st May 1987 to celebrate the 21st Anniversary of the adoption of the name in April 1966 to coincide with the introduction of the full WCML electrified services between London Euston and Liverpool/Manchester.

Plenty of time to save up….May 2022!
I think two hyphens will be one too many but I’ll see about the existing one.
