    Winner of the William C. Morris Debut Award, Darius the Great is Not Okay is the first book by Adib Khorram, published by Penguin Teen in August 2018.

    “Heartfelt, tender, and so utterly real. I’d live in this book forever if I could.”
    —Becky Albertalli, award-winning author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

    For the hardcover edition, Samira Iravani chose the font Populaire, by PintassilgoPrints. Populaire is a hand-drawn font packed with alternates that automatically cycle fueled by OpenType magic. It draws inspiration from the electrifying posters from May 1968 by Atelier Populaire. The author’s name is in tracked out caps from an unidentified geometric sans.

    Read more about the cover design process in a tasty conversation between the cover designer and the book author on Penguin Teen website.
