    Small Fry – just announced by Grove Press – is Lisa Brennan-Jobs’ memoir about her family, including her father, Steve Jobs. The cover uses Hera Big, a Didone with a very unusual lowercase but more traditional caps. One very distinctive letter is the ball-terminaled ‘S’, not commonly found in the capital of a Modern/Rational serif.

      I was about to say Carousel, but although that Letraset classic is pretty ballsy, it doesn’t have a ball-terminaled uppercase ‘S’.
