The Spectre Society by AshleyCope The Spectre Society by AshleyCope
Another book cover for the wonderful ~EmperorJustin. It's hard to see but the villain has his eyes sewn shut. Spooky! You can purchase the book over at Amazon [link] and I recommend you give it a look!

Do you handle all of the design and typography for these projects, too?

I handle everything to do with the cover, but I know nothing of the interiors.

Font wise, do you purchase your fonts, or use royalty free versions? I know we're getting a little technical here-- I'm sorry if I'm being invasive! I'm just getting into book design, and typography drives me nuts. Finding the right font feels like pulling a needle from a haystack.

Oh, I definitely use royalty free. The client isn't going to want to pay extra to buy a font and I certainly don't want to have a chunk taken out of my earnings, so I always go with something free. What works for me when looking for fonts is having a clear vision in my head first of what I'm looking for, maybe even make a sketch of it. Then I'll know it when I see it :) Otherwise yeah, it's overwhelming. Remember, too, if you don't need a lot of type you can always manually tweak a base font into something closer to what you want. You are the master of your design.

Fabulous advice, thank you! I always use royalty free, but sometimes I get paranoid that "Real Artists" don't, and that I might, I don't know, get the freelancer police on my butt? Ridiculous.

Ashley, my brain is in a fog today. Please take my last post as the enthusiastic high compliment it was intended to be; instead of the murky drivel it appears to be now it is posted.

"Well done" seems such an understatement regarding your work these days; but it is very much "Well done".
