I've already covered the fonts I use for writing the actual story text, but those aren't the only fonts a writer needs to choose.
Today I'm more concerned with cover design and the fonts used therein. Readability is, as always, a factor, but much less of one than for the actual text of the book. Covers need to be eye-catching, and title/author font is a big part of that; I know I've picked up a book or two based on how interesting the font was.
Unfortunately, I've never been any good at writing/designing letters, and it doesn't look like I'll be getting into a typography class any time soon, so I'm restrained to using others'.
As of today, I've kept tabs on the following fonts for the following stories:
Dead Font Walking for Along the Winding Road
Aquifer for Short Tales of the Human Body, a compilation of short stories based on and explaining certain aspects of human biology (whether or not it will be written is still udner debate)
Xenogears for Macbay Transportation Services (possibly a dash of Gear Crank for, say, the author name if it would fit in)
bu Penfield Deco for Victims of the Bridge
What do you think? Are these fonts eye-catching enough? What kinds of fonts do you like, either to look at or use in your own stories?
