This cover of the 32nd annual Best of News Design book was designed by Adonis Durado, design director of the Times of Oman & Al Shabiba in Muscat, Oman.
As he explains in this article, Durado used Whitman (designed by Kent Lew) as the main text, and chose Ingeborg Block (by Michael Hochleitner) for the nameplate.
No photos, just typography on this cover. I think it looks great. Anyone care to discuss the design and typography of this cover?
