What the Font?

A fontish primer.

“I’m a self-publisher. I have a great story with a beautiful cover. The content has been professionally edited and is as close to perfect as it’s going to get. Is there another way to make my print book stand out?”

Yes, absolutely.

From what I’ve observed, big publishers use standard font sets for most of the books they release.  If you’re a BIG NAME, you might get an interesting title page or headers.

Self-publishers can call on the expertise of their formatter to dress up a print book with fonts chosen just for you. But, fonts are more than a pretty face.

About Gina Storm Grant

I'm a writer and now, a newbie upcycler. I have 12 books published under 2 pen names. I've taken a 2-year hiatus from writing while I re-purposed my life, but the more I rescue furniture destined to become landfill, the more I feel inspired to write a new book. After all, I gotta do something while waiting for the next coat of paint to dry. Stick with me while I figure out the differences between chalk, milk and mineral paints, which stripper removes shellac and sticky stuff, and whether I want to do stencils, tansfers or decoupage. Oh, and which one is the drill and which the power screwdriver.
