About This Class

Fonts can be boring. But they can also be totally creative and make or break the design of your book - it's up to you as the book designer to choose something that both looks good, but remains legible. Too many times I have seen 'cool' fonts being used that I can't read (Or maybe that's my eyesight?).

Anyway, eyesight aside, I suggest you source at least one custom font for your front cover to give it a special 'flavour'. If you like what you see, consider adding special fonts to the body copy, captions or chapter headers to add real character to the publication - and to make it totally different to everything else on the market.
