Top Ten Tuesday – 10 Book Covers That Feature Typography I Like


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Typographic Book Covers (Book covers with a design that is all or mostly all words. You can also choose to do books with nice typography if that’s easier!).  I’m not even going to lie; this topic really threw me for a loop even with the definition of a typographic book cover supplied for us.  For the longest time I couldn’t think of a single title that fit the description and even now I’m not convinced that most of these do but we’re just going to pretend I did a great job with this topic, okay? Haha!

    You did wonderfully! (VE Schwab’s book cover definitely stood out to me — pretty pretty typography!)

    Great list and picks of cool typographic covers. So many interesting books on your list. I couldn’t agree more with your picks, especially since we have a lot of them in common this week.
    Have a great week 😊

    I’ve read Caraval and The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. But what jumps out is just how crucial the right typography is… and these are awesome examples:). Thank you for sharing.

    Seems we both like the same style. My list contains Caraval, The Invisible Life Of Addie LaRue, and Ninth House, too. The rest sounds new to me and I fear my wishlist just grew *smile* Happy reading.

    I’ve read both Addie LaRue and Caraval and really enjoyed both, I also had Caraval on my list this week, but the UK version of the cover. I’ve started Good Girl Bad, Blood but haven’t finished it yet, and I had A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder on my list this week.
