    Via “The 78 Best Book Covers of 2016, As Chosen By Designers”, presented by Emily Temple on Literary Hub. Of the twenty-six book cover designers invited for this compilation, four voted for Janet Hansen’s design for In Her Feminine Sign as a personal favorite of the year. Linda Huang comments:

    Janet has been on a black-and-white kick lately, and this exquisite cover is my favorite. The expectedly blurring of the top part of the moon and the negative space below the title almost suggest an oblong planet. The refined script is beautifully typeset. The result is ethereal and haunting.

    The typography does with a single font, the delicate Sackers Italian Script, in a single size. The letterforms of this light formal script were roughened up slightly, probably so that they blend better with the coarse image.
