WordCram book covers

December 2013

After talking about John Brunner with a friend, I saw that “Stand on Zanzibar” was reprinted in August 2011, with a very WordCram-y cover:

Stand on Zanzibar

Book covers was always one of the things people talked about using WordCram for, so I thought I’d try making a fake Borges cover. I think they came out well enough to prove out the idea. I’m not sold on the gradient - I like how the solid orange one came out. But I like the idea of having random words (straight out of the Library of Babel) on the cover.

The typeface I used was Bebas Neue, which, it seems, you can never go wrong with.
