    Roberto de Vicq slightly modified Bookmania for this hardcover edition of the acclaimed book by Jojo Moyes. But he is partial to his alternative design (bottom) using Acta Poster.

    Art Director: Roseanne Serra

    This design was a winner in the 2012 50 Books/50 Covers competition.

      I wouldn’t say “heavily”. The “M” has an extra swash on the right side and its right stem is extended downward. The swash on the “R” on the second line is lengthened. Everything else is stock.

      Thanks for the correction. Fixed.

      The Bookmania design features a matte finish for the red background and a gloosy spot varnish for the type. The five large words have also been embossed.
