Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Books on My TBR With Typographic Covers

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by 
That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is about books with typographic covers.  This was a hard one!  I am definitely influenced by covers and tend to be drawn to images and very rarely notice the font but after combing through my TBR lists I found ten books with covers that are mostly words.

1.  A River in Darkness: One Man's Escape from North Korea by Masaji Ishikawa

2.  The Sound of Broken Glass by Deborah Crombie

3.  Battle for the Big Top: P.T. Barnum, James Bailey, and John Ringling and the Death Defying Saga of the American Circus by Les Standiford

4.  The Dead Duke, His Secret Wife, and the Missing Corpse by Piu Marie Eatwell

5.  A Murder of Magpies by Judith Flanders

6.  A Thousand Naked Strangers: A Paramedic's Wild Ride to the End and Back by Kevin Hazzard

7.  A Stranger on the Beach by Michelle Campbell

8.  The Invention of Murder: How the Victorians Reveled in Death and Detection and Created Modern Crime by Judith Flanders

9.  All These Beautiful Strangers by Elizabeth Klehforth

10. Dead Girl Running by Christina Dodd

What books with typographic covers are on your TBR?


  1. I don't recognize any of these!! No!!!! A Murder of Magpies is going to work for me, that I know. And the Dead Duke one probably as well...

  2. They are all eye-catching, punchy covers, Katherine. Which proves just how important the typography can be - especially with a strong title. The one that always sticks in my mind is Room by Emma Donoghue. Thank you for sharing!

  3. I haven't seen The Sound of Broken Glass before, but the typography is definitely eye catching.

  4. I liked several of the covers, especially All These Beautiful Strangers, as I'm thinking of swimming on a beach without hurricanes right now!

  5. Fun covers! My favorite is The Invention of Murder:

  6. These are great covers and look like good books.

  7. Battle For the Big Top is a perfect cover for this week's TTT! :)

  8. I saw the title of the post and I was thinking now - what's that! Okay I see, quite effective really and iwth the colouring they look that much more atmospheric.

  9. I have A River in Darkness. The cover for Battle for the Big Top is super eye-catching. 🎪
