I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. Add all of them to your font collection! Let it grow!
Font Sleuth Cee is taking a different approach to this You’re Just My Type post! Unlike my previous post that had four different books with their respective title font, I decided to focus on the gorgeous font on the Tale of Beauty and Madness series by Lili St. Crow.

I love this font because of the calligraphy-esque look of it. It looks like somebody had wrote with a feather and ink, and I think that’s so cool!
Let’s see it on the covers, shall we?
- You can see that the “A” before “Tale of Beauty and Madness” is different from the “A” I used. I couldn’t find that specific “A” in the font glyphs. I either somehow missed it, which is doubtful, or it was specifically created for the covers.
- The “y” in “Wayfarer” is different than on the cover. Like the “A” I talked about in the previous point, I couldn’t find that cover’s “y” in the glyphs, and perhaps it was made specifically for the cover to flow better.
- The designer photoshopped the left side of the “K” out, hence why the “K” I used is different from the cover.
