Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday prompt, everyone! Today, we’re talking about some of my favorite title fonts from book covers. But before we get into the actual list, here’s the original prompt from the T5W group:
This idea might sound super random, but bear with me! What are your favorite cover fonts? There are some pretty interesting and unique ones out there, so I can’t wait to see what you come up with!(This month’s prompts were provided by Alex (The Scribe Owl). Top 5 Wednesday was originally created by GingerReadsLainey.)
Honestly, I love this prompt. It’s such a creative twist on your average “favorite book covers” prompt, and I had a lot of fun choosing these.
So, without further ado, I give you my picks for my favorite title fonts!
Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh
So, full disclosure, this actually isn’t the edition I own. But I wish I did because I love the font of the title so much. (And the cover in general, but we’re here to talk about fonts today.) It’s designed to resemble the blades of the throwing stars that Mariko designs in the book, and I just love it.
On These Black Sands by Vanessa Rasanen
I’m so excited for this book! And I absolutely love the swirly gold title font on the cover. It goes so perfectly with the border pattern and the pommel of the sword. And the way some of the letters just…flow together? Yeah, I’m in love.
The Descent of the Drowned by Ana Lal Din
Okay, yes, this cover in general is just absolutely stunning. But that Old English style font totally steals the show. I especially love the way that the letters loop around themselves. Plus, the silver color makes is gorgeous against the teal background.
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
The thing I love about this cover is the snake that’s shaped to form the “and” sign. I love the creativity and uniqueness of that choice. Of course, the overall cover is pretty great, too. But it’s that stylized snake font that gives Serpent & Dove a spot on this list.
Master of One by Jaida Jones and Dani Bennett
I’ve wanted to read this one for so long. The whole premise just seems so interesting, and I can’t wait for when I finally have the time to get around to it. But, of course, for the purpose of this post, I also love the title font. It kinds of reminds me of a deck of cards; I don’t know if that’s the intended vibe, but I feel like that would fit with what I know about the story.
So, I hope you enjoyed this list of my favorite title fonts. Feel free to drop a comment down below and let me know your own picks. Additionally, if you liked this post, feel free to use the Extras tab above to see more posts like this one!
