Just My Type Book Cover

Profile Books

Published by Profile books, Simon Garfield’s bestselling book Just My Type  describes the history of typography through a series of illuminating stories. Garfield’s text is accessible, informative and at times amusing.

For the paperback release of the book, Barnbrook were asked to create a new cover design. The final version was created by scouring numerous font libraries for the perfect combination of typefaces – to give the cover a playful spirit. Two versions of the cover were produced, one featuring black background and one metallic silver, both adorned with fluorescent inks.
