Top Ten Tuesday: (Five) Books with Typographic Covers

Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This week’s theme highlights one of my favourite elements of book covers: beautiful fonts!


1. The To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series by Jenny Han
God, that cursive, though–it makes the covers look like scrapbooks, and I don’t think I could give them more Lara Jean praise than that!

2. The Anna/Lola/Isla series by Stephanie Perkins
The colours, the backgrounds, and then that font… Never mind French kiss, more like *chef kiss*!

3. The Folk of the Air series by Holly Black
This series has such a stand-out font. I’ve seen it used on other (completely unrelated) books, and it makes me mad every time, because I have that split-second hope that it’s a new TFOTA book!

4. Everything by Karen M. McManus
There’s a marketing trend I’ve seen a lot lately: giving authors their own specific font, even (or especially) if their books are standalones. It think it’s a really clever marketing strategy to be able to connect an author to a specific style–and to boot, Karen M. McManus’s have a great unifying font!

5. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
This cover is 90% font, 10% snake. Is it any wonder I thought of it first, for this prompt?


Don’t you love it when you can recognise an author by their font?
