Faber & Faber Makes Its Marque and Launches 2014 Spring List
Faber & Faber launches its Spring 2014 catalogue, introducing a new word marque in a bespoke font and a defined colour palette.
The list includes a spectacular array of publications, from lyrics to poems, prose and fiction: new novels by Hanif Kureishi and Sebastian Barry, and short stories by Lorrie Moore; a memoir by John Carey celebrating the joy of reading; The Ted Hughes Bestiary, edited by prize-winning poet Alice Oswald.
The catalogue also ushers in several distinctive new design features: a new Faber word marque in a bespoke font inspired by the typography of the late 1920s, the period of Faber's early existence, and makes use of a fresh palette of colours created for use across the business and inspired by book covers in Faber's archive.
