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!

Surprise, surprise! It’s one of these posts—You’re Just My Type! It feels like it’s been a while, hasn’t it?

I unintentionally took a break because I was lacking inspiration. I just felt stuck, and I didn’t feel like I was contributing at all by recycling free fonts you can find on Pinterest. I wanted to step away from that and be more of a help. I felt my font sleuth title slipping away from me! But no more!

In this post, Font Sleuth Cee is on the case for book titles’s fonts! What do I mean? Well, have you ever seen the title of books and wonder what font the designer used? Well, this post is for you! I’ve identified the fonts for four book titles—Fairest, Love Lucy, A Darker Shade of Magic, and Soulprint! Trust me, they are all completely accurate.


Aeronaut is the font used for the title of Fairest by Marissa Meyer. It is also used for the titles of the Lunar Chronicles books.


Frosted and Carolyna Pro Black are the two fonts used for Love, Lucy by April Linder! Carolyna Pro Black is also used for The Boy Next Door.


Polyspring is the font used for the title of A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. This font find was actually from Georgie, who emailed me seven months ago about it! (Thanks, Georgie! <3)


FF Trixie Pro Heavy is the font used for the title of Soulprint by Megan Miranda.


Which font is your favorite? Is there a book you want me to attempt to search for? I hoped you liked it, and if you did, tell me if you want me to continue!

  1. I love Polyspring. This is such a neat, helpful site for figuring out book fonts. :) Thank you!

    What a fun idea for a feature! I like the Aeronaut font they used for the Lunar Chronicles books, the font has that fairytale feel. I find it interesting that Love Lucy uses two different fonts in the title and I didn’t even realize it until I noticed the part were you mentioned the fonts.

  3. I love the idea for this feature, I’m always curious about book fonts, I know they’re going to be fonts bought by cover designers, but it’s so much fun to see what they actually are. I hope you do this again sometime, my addiction to fonts will really appreciate it.

  4. Ooh the Carolyna font is my favorite! I wish I could afford to buy it! It’s fun to know the fonts of the books I see around, so I do hope you’ll continue this feature! I’m curious to know the font for the Throne of Glass books!

  5. YAAAAAAAYYYYYYY these are baaaaack! I missed these posts from you, Cee. I am totally diggin’ Polyspring the most…although I do have a soft spot for Aeronaut and Frosted ;D I like how you find fonts from titles of books! That makes this feature even more awesome than usual XD <3

  6. I Am ALL ABOUT that Lunar Chronicles font <3333 It's also the font on Kenneth Oppel's books, right?

  7. Oh that’s so cool that you found the fonts used in these books! I really love the font they used for the Lunar Chronicles series. It looks so fancy with all those swirls.

    I like the ones on Love, Lucy and soulprint.
    Is this a series that you’ve done? I love that you matched the font with the typography on the book covers. I’m off to search your blog for more awesome posts!
