Happy Tuesday, my friends! Today’s theme for Top Ten Tuesday is typographic book covers – covers where the design is all, or mostly, words. Or, to say it another way, the cover is all about the words. This was a more difficult topic to narrow down than I anticipated so I ended up picking mostly covers that – were the title to be removed – you would have little to no idea what the book was about. That doesn’t apply to all of the ones I chose, but it does for most of them. The words really do make the cover, in these cases below.
