Cover Trend: Beautiful Swirly Font

I've noticed a new cover trend. Beautiful, swirly fonts. Check it out.

Beautiful Creatures
by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

In a small South Carolina town, where it seems little has changed since the Civil War, sixteen-year-old Ethan is powerfully drawn to Lena, a new classmate with whom he shares a psychic connection and whose family hides a dark secret that may be revealed on her sixteenth birthday.

Beautiful Darkness
by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

In a small southern town with a secret world hidden in plain sight, sixteen-year-old Lena, who possesses supernatural powers and faces a life-altering decision, draws away from her true love, Ethan, a mortal with frightening visions.

by Lauren Oliver
Harper Collins

Lena looks forward to receiving the government-mandated cure that prevents the delirium of love and leads to a safe, predictable, and happy life, until ninety-five days before her eighteenth birthday and her treatment, when she falls in love.

by Cynthia Hand

Sixteen-year-old Clara Gardner's purpose as an angel-blood begins to manifest itself, forcing her family to pull up stakes and move to Jackson, Wyoming, where she learns that danger and heartbreak come with her powers.

by Gena Showalter

Since coming to Crossroads, Oklahoma, former outcast Aden Stone has been living the good life. Never mind that one of his best friends is a werewolf, his girlfriend is a vampire princess who hungers for his blood, and he's supposed to be crowned Vampire King--while still a human! Well, kind of. With four--oops, three now--human souls living inside his head, Aden has always been 'different' himself.

Do you know of any more?  Let me know in the comments and I'll add them.


  1. Such gorgeous covers! I love that the Beautiful Creatures/Darkness covers use a custom illustration that isn't even a font, but rather something drawn just for those 2 books. I'm a fan of the flourish fonts, they're just so striking:) I could stare at these all day!

  2. I know! I think Unearthly is one of my favorites, but Beautiful Creatures definitely beat all these others to the punch, leading the way with this style.

  3. So true! Caster Chronicles are one of my favorite book covers.. so eye catching. i wonder if i could get this font or where i could find a text generator w/ this font.

  4. As far back as the disclosure of print media, fonts have been indispensable to distributing. cool font generator
