The cover of Emma. ‘s novel, ‘Brother’s Ruin’ uses the Wolverton typeface family, a Greater Albion design room several years ago.
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…
Another sighting in the wild. Wolverton used, rather appropriately I feel, for the lettering on the cover of Joy Callaway’s ‘Fifth Avenue Artists Society.’
I was quite surprised a few days ago to see lettering in Bromwich, writ large on the side of a ‘bus. It was on a modern advertising vinyl, occupying the full side of the bus, promoting Bickford and Sons range of drink mixers. The bus was awkwardly placed and in motion, ruling out the possibility of a photograph, but it turns out that Bickford and Sons of South Australia make extensive use of Bromwich on their website and indeed on their bottle labels as well. All rather pleasing!
M K Hume’s latest series of novels make excellent use of the Vectis typeface family:
We were delighted yesterday to spot this book cover in a local bookshop. It’s the cover on the first paperback edition of Beatrice Colin’s “The Songwriter” and the author’s name is set in Svengali Roman Regular-and fits in with the rest of the design splendidly, we think you’ll agree.
“The Songwriter” looks jolly interesting and well worth a read. You can read more about it on Amazon’s UK site.
