Outliers

I hesitate a little to post this, as it's not yet released. But the Hachette Web site has posted it, including a hi-res version, so I think we're looking at a final cover.


But this can't be final. Look at the kerning in the title. This can't be final...can it? A reader asks "rs is outlying?" Could be, but "success" seems pretty poorly kerned as well...

Buy this book from Amazon.com

should've used optical spacing...

Adrian from Victoria said...

Perhaps the "rs" is lying out from the "Outlie"?

damned_cat said...

my untrained eye can see the outlie rs but not the problem with success. elab?

Hi damned_cat: the letter spacing gets tighter from left to right. Compare the spacing between S and U to start, and then between S and S at the end.

Perhaps as you say it's not final...Beautiful cover, though.

Aah, thank you for posting this. I was waiting desperatly for the new book of Malcolm. Loved "Blink" and "Tipping Point". Next stop amazon. ;-)

To me the cover looks fine, but I'm no designer.

I found your blog through "Remarkable Blogs". It's a really nice idea.

Whatis this book about people? Malcom Gladwells books are always great!

Are those horizontal rules necessary?

Your answer was correct if you blurted out, "No, they are not. Remove them right now."

While I'm at it: I hate the clunkiness of U&lc in Small Caps. And, just to be a total type Nazi, the leading between the author's names is too much -- the type feels like it's all about to drift out to sea.

But, as my editor friends would say, "aside from that it's perfect!"

damned_cat said...

wow. i swear i looked and looked, but i couldn't see any imperfection till you pointed that out. "good eye" is an understatement.
