“A good designer will know exactly what style of font suits your design and genre, but if you intend to design your book covers yourself, there are some things worth knowing about fonts before you get started.

I’m pretty sure you’ve seen covers on which you just “know” something is not working and you feel that the design looks amateurish, but you can’t put your finger on it. More often than not the issue is with the typography. Sometimes font choice is the only thing standing between a successful vs. failed cover design because the imagery might actually be worth keeping.”
