2 Comments on “Faber Poetry titles”
In c. 2009, Tony Davis was commissioned “to create designs which could both exist as designs for retail but also complement the Faber brand and books taking it into new areas of business.” Among the products that reference the Poetry series were porcelain mugs, bookbags, and a pack of playing cards, further iconizing the cover designs featuring Perpetua.
Please could you tell me what font Faber used when printing the poetry of Seamus Heaney – and what point size. I’m asking about the text of the poems and their titles – not about the covers. I’ve been unable to find out online – so I’d be very grateful if you could oblige. Best wishes – Paul Browne
Hello Paul, do you have an image showing a page set in the typefaces in question, or could you point us to one?
