Jarrod Taylor: Chicago


Love everything about this one--the colors, typeface, illustrations. All of the elements are perfectly integrated.

From Amazon:
The author of the highly acclaimed The Yacoubian Building returns with a story of love, sex, friendship, hatred, and ambition set in Chicago, with a cast of American and Arab characters achingly human in their desires and needs.

typefaces—all of it.

Actually, the designer also has an illustration credit on the flap, so I doubt the images are from a typeface.

well, the font needed to be designed by an illustrator. But all that aside, I do like the vibrance of this cover.
