5 Pretty Neat-o Title Fonts

Good morning, children's book cover lovers! The time has come for another title font cornucopia. Forthwith, we present a few eye-catchers.

Non-fiction does a typeface proud here:

Spiderlings and their Families
A Fact Book on Spiders
by Antonio Calabrisello,
Nadia Turner, illus. (Brolly Books (Aus.) 2008

See also, Turner's companion book from 2010, Snakelets. (Skip if you don't like spiders and snakes.)

Although these letters have some curves, they do give us the sense of squareness. Also note how the wide-apart letter spacing (kerning?) adds to the effect.

Square Cat
by Elizabeth Schoonmaker (Aladdin, 2011)

Bink and Gollie's typeface promises fun and laughs for readers:

Bink and Gollie by Kate DiCamillo and
Alison McGhee, Tony Fucile, illus.
(Candlewick, 2010)
Winner of this year's Theodore Geisel Award
for a beginning reader

Turn of the last century  + outer space. A sort of Jules Verne feel not out of keeping with this novel's 1910/Halley's Comet material:

Selling Hope by Kristin O'Donnell Tubb
(Feiwel and Friends, 2010)
