Spotted in the Wild

I was delighted to spot Catherine Jinks’ novel for younger readers (of all ages) published by Allen and Unwin “Theophilus Grey and the Demon Thief” in one of my favourite local bookshops. For those wondering, The bookshop is the Subiaco Bookshop, no connection except as a long term and very satisfied customer.  The cover  makes very splendid and appropriate use of the ‘Wellingborough’ typeface family to create some charming and eye-catching typography.

I maintain a small collection of items (most often books) which use Greater Albion’s typefaces, and had to purchase a copy to add to that accumulation.  That said, and notwithstanding being several decades older than the intended readership, I can heartily recommend Catherine’s book as a lively entertain read.
