The good-looking Type

Without a stock image or artwork (or a budget for either of these), necessity is the mother of invention.

I particularly like the playfulness of the evolutionary A on the cover of The First Word and the visual pun of casting (type-casting?) for Brian Clarke’s book On Fishing. The sullen simplicity of Against Happiness certainly holds it own against the buckling Heat (but may regard this as scant consolation).

Thanks to Wes Moore for drawing attention to this collection of typographic book covers, curated by Erica Jennings.
