When it comes to the design of book covers, I tend to be one of the few who does like models or people. Of course this too is dependent on the style, but I’m not one who minds (even if it’s one of those artistic cropped ones). However, our list today is going in a different direction and looking at typography book cover designs. Because sometimes fonts deserve all the shout-0uts too!🖋️🎨📚ALL BOUT BOOK TYPOGRAPHY DESIGNS: BOOKS WITH FUN TYPE📚🎨🖋️#TOPTEN #TOPTENTUESDAY #BOOKLIST #COVERART #COVERDESIGN #BOOKDESIGN Click To Tweet
Good fonts aren’t to be underrated. A good font can tell a kind of story too, or it can just fill the cover design of a book in the best and most attractive kind of way. Either way, I’m not going to complain having the chance to talk design! Let’s dive right in.
Honestly, I probably have better “type” cover design books on my shelf, but this is the list I have, so I’m working with it.

THE INHERITANCE GAMES, JENNFER LYNN BARNES
WORDS IN DEEP BLUE, CATH CROWLEY
THE REST OF THE STORY, SARAH DESSEN
Totally get what this cover art is trying to do based on the theme of the novel, but I wish it were a bit more defined and covered more space. I’m including it not because I 100% love it, but because the idea has potential. So, I’m including this one just because. Amazon | Goodreads
THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY, JENNY HAN
The redesigns of Jenny’s ‘Summer’ trilogy uses its text as the main point of the cover. It has a pretty pastel background with crisp white text. Plus, the covers still manage to incorporate all their summer themes with seashells! Amazon | Goodreads
WHAT I CARRY, JENNIFER LONGO
LOSING BRAVE, BAILEE MADISON
THE LIBRABRY OF LOST THINGS, LAURA TAYLOR NAMEY
DEAR MR. KNIGHTLEY, KATHERINE REAY
THE LOVELY AND THE LOST, JENNIFER E. SMITH
What I like about this one is how the design and text are married so well. I love that the text kind of “intertwines” with the design through the mountains and clouds. Looks nice and gives more of a kind of haunted look which I think is kind of part of the book’s premise. Amazon | Goodreads
THE EVAPORATION OF SOFI SNOW, MARY WEBER
