While I know for a fact that I am a huge lover of book covers, there is also the slight possibility that I also love a nice bit of typography on a book cover.

I shouldn’t have to tell anyone this, but designing a book cover is so much more than just getting the right picture and slapping the title on the cover. The font can say so much about a book and really give the reader some taste of what will be inside before they even crack it open.
Here are just a few of my favourite covers, with super unique typography:
Which one of these covers do you like best? Do you have a specific cover you love solely for the design of the title?
