book cover design

Hello Typophiles!

I was wondering if anyone knows what typeface is used on the original cover of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn?
Thank you in advance for your kind help.

Dear friends, my research (Mphil) has come to an end. It seems now that the writing of 200 pages was nothing compared to the difficulty of designing a decent cover. I’m a graduated graphic designer but I haven’t practiced for a long time. Can you please advise me? Here’s the spread. The image I choose is a drawing by the great Gordon Cullen (1950s) which is one of the architects I investigate. It shows a very cluttered “subtopian” landscape, the problem is that there’s not much white space left for the information I have to provide (my name, title and possibly EESC USP Universidade de São Paulo). I chose this typeface because many of the texts I analyse in the research were typewritten...silly? thanks everyone.

Hello all,

I've designed a book cover (attached) for a small publishing company and it seems I won't be able to print it as a single spot colour (Pantone 546C), as I'd hoped. So I'll be sending over the final artwork in CMYK instead(C-91 M-15 Y-0 K-83). As well as text for the Title, Authors, Biogs, etc. the cover will include a lino print which I can mask and fill in Photoshop with the same colour value.

My concern are the oft-spoken about registration issues with small text in CMYK. Should I be concerned at all? Or, since the colour is quite dark anyway, should I change the text to K-100 only and leave the lino image in colour. Or is there something I'm missing?

Hello!

I'd be very grateful if you would give me some comments on my "The Road" by C. McCarthy book cover... it's done as an exercise. And because I loved the book. :)

Thanks!
