This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is our top five favorite title fonts on book covers. The design of a cover is extremely important because it is the first impression that a potential reader gets, and is what will inspire them to learn more about the actual novel itself. We may not entirely judge a book by its cover, but it definitely plays a significant role in the book selection process of all readers.
As both a reader and an artist, I have always enjoyed every aspect of a novel, from the cover to the layout to the actual text of the story. I will admit, covers are very important to me and I can get pretty picky when choosing what edition I want to buy. I also happen to be a huge typography nerd, so I love covers with unique and beautiful title fonts.
It was tough to chose, but here are a few of the books that I think have both distinctive and gorgeous title fonts!
- The Singular and Extraordinary Tale of Mirror and Goliath by Ishbelle Bee
- The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
