21 Book Covers, Real and Imagined, Designed by David Pearson

First available at Typographics, a festival for people who make and use type in New York, in June 2016, this specimen shows both real and imagined book covers designed by our good friend David Pearson, one of the best book cover designers working today. The covers are each printed with a spot varnish, which looks incredible in person but makes the specimen exceedingly difficult to photograph. David has used a mix of released and unreleased typefaces, including many from our forthcoming Commercial Classics library of historical British types, faithfully revivied. Each spread shows one book cover, with the typefaces used listed on the opposite page.
