The novelisation of Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 movie, written by the director himself – his first novel. According to Tarantino, the novel is “a complete rethinking of the entire story”, and departs from the film by adding new and re-ordered sequences, more detail and extra backstory to many of the characters.
The cover design is a departure from the original movie branding which had used the iconic Hollywood sign in its title. Here the font use and cream colour evoke a vintage, period design, fitting of the story’s setting of 1969.
The title typeface is (fittingly) Americana Bold which is horizontally scaled to 72% and tightly kerned. Veronese is used for the smaller text.
