Celebrity Books




I enjoy working for the publishing industry and that work can take various forms; titles for covers, part headings for inside the book, quotes for the back cover as well as author logos that work across a range of books.


Genres can vary but recently I've noticed I've been working on quite a few celebrity books. I think the reason why hand lettering works so well with this type of cover is because it often features a photograph of the author. A simple hand lettered title dropped over the photography can soften the design and give it a human touch.This is particularly true of autobiographies when the personal feel of lettering can remind us that we're reading the celebrity's own thoughts.

  1. Your lettering definitely gives the human touch Ruth. Great work! I especially like the script lettering you used for Judi Dench.
