    Sveva is used for the covers of the fantasy book series The Greatcoats by Sebastien de Castell, published by Jo Fletcher Books, an imprint of Quercus Books, in 2015–2018. The Art Nouveau-inspired all-caps typeface appears with many of its contextual alternates and swash glyphs. Sveva is also used for the Polish edition by Insignis.

    The UK edition additionally uses ITC Franklin Gothic or similar for the author’s name and Century Gothic for the blurbs on the hardcover. The smaller type on the paperbacks is from various styles of Trade Gothic.
