    There are now ten separate anthologies in the annual Best American series, which began in 1986. Most, but not all, of this year’s titles show similar cover treatments, using types by Hoefler & Co.

    For many years, the series featured a different cover format designed by Carin Goldberg, which used Schneidler Initials. That face is still used as a series logo, as shown in the last slide.
