Font Speciman Book for the new fonts — 2 Comments

  1. I really like the graphic. That g is both timeless and invites innovation with the layout.
    For some reason the color surround is striking me as 90s. Maybe because my dad’s book had a similar frame in ’92. Somehow you have to keep there from being white around the edge, but would it be difficult to turn the whole background a single color?
    Plus, seeing the topic first and then the cover, it seemed kind of dull to just have one font for the whole text. Of course, you would have to be careful and play around with it to be legible, but would it be hard to have something more like a ransom note with all different fonts to spark the imagination? Maybe just for a portion, e.g. “font design” or something, but surely you can come up with something more creative looking since the book is all about tools for creatives.
    Fonts are fascinating. I don’t plan to invent any of my own, but this looks like fun!

  2. Thanks for the comment, Cheri. I’m not surprised about the 90s. I’m not a fan of the flat look. To me it’s more like the Emperor doesn’t have new clothes, he’s naked! I’ll pray about your ideas, though.

    Interestingly, WordPress seems to have chewed up and eaten the posting on the new cover for the book. The image is the new cover for font specimen book. Your comment says it is: New comment on your post “First whisper of the new book and a new cover to comment upon”. That post is gone, somehow.

    On another note, my creationist book, the training Place of Mankind, is in approval stage for the audio edition.

Whatcha thinkin'?
