For your viewing pleasure we present some recent releases that have pretty neat-o typefaces on the cover:
An Eye for Color, a picture book about Josef Albers (Henry Holt, 2009). Clever.
Next, we have Fallen, a young adult thriller/dark romance about good ol' fallen angels (Doubleday, 2009). The typeface has just enough of a romantic feel, no?
Incarceron (Penguin, 2010) is a dystopian thriller. Unlike some people out there, I'm still not over steampunk. Love the clockwork lettering.
The Rock and the River (S&S, 2009). Not an unusual typeface, yet it's clean and fresh here.
Ellen Hopkins' Tricks (S&S, 2009). Edgy and dangerous.
