How to Choose a Font for Your Book

p2323.jpgAs more writers explore self-publishing options and digital editions re-create print books, the time has never been better to brush up on book fonts. If you have to pick a font for your book, why not consult with the experts?

After the jump, we’ve embedded a video from the talented designers from Penguin–talking about their favorite fonts for books. It’s a fascinating primer about the world of book design. If you are a design nerd, check out another video feature we posted–watch an expert design a book cover.

Here’s more from Penguin: “Fonts. Obsessed? Couldn’t care less? Either way, they affect the way that you feel about what you’re reading. They’re an added layer of communication that we are often unaware of. Fonts and book design add richness and character to our reading experience. And we wanted to hear from the people who spend their days focused on how to complement the work of writers published by Penguin.”
