But to my eye, the Mennonite Hymnal from 1969 has the best aesthetics of all the scans you shared.

Much of the shape-note tradition is aimed at amateurs. It's trying to get a strong community-wide music tradition from minimal educational resources. For that 1969 book, the level of music training behind it is probably higher than many of the others.


There is also a successor, "Hymnal: A Worship Book" from 1992.

But I don't own one of those and can't find page scans anywhere.
