Emily Temple of Literary Hub comments on the current trend in book cover design:
2018 is the year of the all-caps typography—or to be more precise, big, blocky, sans-serif type treatments, usually somewhat condensed (or at least more vertical than they are horizontal), usually in white or black (but sometimes in warmer colors) against either a riotous, black-based background or a neutral one. … this style proclaims literariness, importance, and coolness all at once. The big letters say: this is an important literary book. The exuberant backgrounds say: and it’s totally hot right now.
