    I’m not a great fan of Century Gothic with its high-waisted P’s and R’s, but I liked this design by Michael Morris, who really made this cover stand out on the new books shelf at the public library. Everyone’s setting type very large to read easily on web pages, but he varied point sizes so that the words advance and recede, supporting the concept of a book about a large cast of characters moving around the world during a span of six decades.

    The illustration is also by Michael Morris.
