Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons Why I Love Covers With Beautiful & Creative Typography


This week's topic is:  Reasons Why I Love Covers With Beautiful & Creative Typography

My topic title is a bit wordy, but I had no idea what to do for this week's more open-ended topic and decided that I would share some beautiful covers I love that don't focus as much on a single image (such as a person or symbol), but that either have beautiful typography or incorporate the typography into the overall image in some way. And rather than tell you, I'm just going to show you some examples! (And yes, there are more than ten because it just ended up being more balanced that way, but more is also better than less when it comes to books, am I right?)

  1. Those are definitely covers that I couldn't walk past without having to pick the book up, check out the blurb and maybe sneakily read the first page.
