I think this was published a couple of years ago, but we were pleased recently to see ‘Vectis’ in use on the cover of Jim Butcher’s “The Aeronaut’s Windlass”. Must admit I’m not entirely sure what an Aeronaut does or where the windlass comes into it, but it is an impressively dramatic looking cover…
We were recently delighted to discover Rachel McMillan’s series of Herringford and Watts mystery Novels and Novellas, all set in Edwardian Toronto, and making most appropriate use of the Great Bromwich typeface family on their covers… Would like to add, they’re a splendid read too!
We just spotted Great Bromwich Bold providing the typeface for the title on this 80th anniversary omnibus edition of P.L. Travers’Mary Poppins stories. An eminently suitable typeface for the purpose, we feel.
We’ve previously written here about the use of Wellingborough on the cover of Catherine Jinks’ children’ novel “Theophilus Grey and the Demon Thief”, as published by Allen & Unwin. A very splendid cover we felt:
We were equally pleased today to spot Wellingborough in a return appearance on the cover of the sequel “Theophilus Grey and the Traitor’s Mask”. Another splendid piece of typography on a jolly splendid cover!
