Murder in Edwardian Toronto

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!

The Beginning of the End of the World

We always like to show real world uses of our typefaces where they are pointed out to us.  Professor Robert Crawford‘s book, “The Beginning of the End of the World” will be published by Birlinn ( next month.  The cover design makes extensive use of our Great Bromwich family, which we feel provides an excellent compliment for the design.

The book looks rather interesting-Birlinn’s information says:

In a work of spectacular imagination and remarkable synthesis, Robert Crawford celebrates St Andrews, the first town in the English-speaking world to have its people, buildings and natural environment thoroughly documented through photography. The Beginning and the End of the World tells the stories of several pioneering Scottish photographers. Yet it also places them within the extraordinary intellectual life of an eccentric society rich in sometimes apocalyptically-minded Victorian inventors and authors whose work has had an international impact.

An eminently suitable use for Great Bromwich, we feel.
