T5W: Title Fonts

This week on Top 5 Wednesday we’re going to talk about our favorite title fonts. I’m one of those people that pays a lot of attention to the covers of their books and having things match, but I never really thought about the fonts by themselves. I evaluate the cover as a whole.

I did mess around with Photoshop for a couple of years and I picked up a thing or two about typography as a result. Despite my best efforts, I wasn’t able to elaborate why I love these fonts I just kind of do. So without further ado, here are five of my favorite title fonts (in no particular order):

Jackaby by William Ritter
