Top Ten Tuesday

TTT – Typographic Book Covers

Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.

This week’s topic is typographic book covers, or those that have a design that is all or nearly all words. It was submitted by Mareli @ Elza Reads. I have a tendency to choose books with striking covers, and sometimes the simplicity of a cover that just includes words, or those where words dominate the cover catch my eye. Here’s ten typographic covers that I really enjoyed:

  1. The Witch Haven by Sasha Peyton Smith
  2. The Witch in the Well by Camilla Bruce
  3. The Storyteller’s Secret by Sejal Badani
  4. Hester by Laurie Lico Albanese
  5. Night of the Living Rez by Morgan Talty
  6. The Change by Kirsten Miller
  7. Upgrade by Blake Crouch
  8. And There He Kept Her by Joshua Moehling
  9. First Time for Everything by Henry Fry
  10. Nettle and Bone by T. Kingfisher

What are some of your favorite typographic book covers?
