Type Journal Design Principles OUGD404 Typographic Book Cover

Both fonts used in this situation have their origins in metal type, this is because of the high contrast of thick and thin and the small sharp serifs in both that could not be created in wood. It is highly likely these are now digitised fonts but the suggestion of industrial and therefore victorian origins through the use of these fonts works perfectly with the christmas theme; nearly all of out modern ideals of christmas come from the victorian age. The main title font also has the perfect mix of tradition and ornamentation with the weight contrast coupled with lavish terminals and delicate serifs.
