Courtney is up first with her favorites! Y’all can get the scoop on these stories by clicking the covers below to hop over to a post on the blog or product page on Amazon!
Courtney: I love this topic… FONTS! I am such a font lover. I could get lost for hours on font websites, I’m that big of a nerd!
I love the trend of putting more creative fonts on book covers, and when my publisher decided to use a hand-lettered font for my books, I was over the moon!
That said, here are five of my favorite book covers with super fun or creative fonts.
The Theory of Happily Ever After
by Kristin Billerbeck
Courtney: First, let me say I’m a sucker for the blue and yellow color combo, but I think the cover for Kristin Billberbeck’s new novel is absolutely adorable. The use of these two fonts works perfectly together, and that title font is perfection!
by Teresa Tysinger
Courtney: I’ve loved Teresa Tysinger’s cover from the moment I first saw it. It’s clean, not too busy and the whole color combination speaks to the title. I love that they chose a sans serif font to go along with this script, and I think the choice is exquisite!
The Hidden Side
by Heidi Chiavaroli
Courtney: The title font for Heidi Chiavaroli’s novel, The Hidden Side reminds me of the signatures on the Declaration of Independence. Given the subject matter, I think that was likely intentional, and I think it works beautifully!
Keep Holding On
by Melissa Tagg
Courtney: Oh my goodness, I love this cover. This might be one of my all-time favorite font combinations! I LOVE the title font SO much and pretty much want to use it on everything I ever create. It pops right off the front of this book and it’s just soooo adorable!
Things I Never Told You
by Beth K. Vogt
Courtney: I’m not sure if it’s the fact that this font looks a little like my own handwriting or the way they layered it over the entire cover of the book, but I absolutely swooned when I saw this cover. I think it’s genius, and the neutral color palette makes me feel like exhaling. Isn’t it gorgeous?
There’s something to be said for the traditional fonts, which still work beautifully, but these artistic ones really capture my eye!
Beth: First of all, I love your cover love fab fonts picks, Courtney! Three of them are on my tbr and I really enjoyed reading the other two!
It was so so hard to narrow this down to just five so my daughter stepped in to help me (she’s a big fan of script fonts)… I will definitely have to do another font cover love in the future!
Bradford Sisters Romance series
by Becky Wade
Beth: I love this whimsy script paired with the formal, traditional, and stately series name holder! These covers are such a fun combination of classic elegance and contemporary style.
A Note Yet Unsung
by Tamera Alexander
Beth: If ever a font was fit for fancy classical music, it’s this one! The silver embossed letters tie into the visual glitz and glamour of this cover perfectly!
Just the Way You Are
by Pepper Basham
Beth: Here’s a little something y’all may not know about me, I love to snug words all close together nice and cozy like a big lettery hug! See how Way is just tucked right in there between the Y and A?! Snuggly!
The Mark of the King
by Jocelyn Green
Beth: This cover is simply majestic! That dress, that font, and flourishes galore!
Close to You & Can’t Help Falling
by Kara Isaac
Beth: I’m a big fan of pairing script with an understated sans serif font. Factor in the colors and photos on these covers and they’re simply irresistible!
Just Let Go
by Courtney Walsh
For Quinn Collins, buying the flower shop in downtown Harbor Pointe fulfills a childhood dream, but also gives her the chance to stick it to her mom, who owned the store before skipping town twenty years ago and never looking back. Completing much-needed renovations, however, while also competing for a prestigious flower competition with her mother as the head judge, soon has Quinn in over her head. Not that she’d ever ask for help.
Luckily, she may not need to. Quinn’s father and his meddling friends find the perfect solution in notorious Olympic skier Grady Benson, who had only planned on passing through the old-fashioned lakeside town. But when a heated confrontation leads to property damage, helping Quinn as a community-service sentence seems like the quickest way out—and the best way to avoid more negative press.
Quinn finds Grady reckless and entitled; he thinks she’s uptight and too regimented. Yet as the two begin to hammer and saw, Quinn sees glimpses of the vulnerability behind the bravado, and Grady learns from her passion and determination, qualities he seems to have lost along the way. But when a well-intentioned omission has devastating consequences, Grady finds himself cast out of town—and Quinn’s life—possibly forever. Forced to face the hurt holding her back, Quinn must finally let go or risk missing out on the adventure of a lifetime.
Beth: I adore the hand lettering for this series! I am amazed by the artistic skill required for creating such beauty with words and that applies to both the outside and inside of the book!
Reader friends, don’t miss the first installment in the Harbor Pointe series, Just Look Up! It’s one of my all-time favorite books! I’ll be reading Just Let Go this weekend and I’d love for y’all to join me!
