    From Berger & Föhr:

    Stephen Foehr is the author of a series of non-fiction books that use music to explore the culture and history of a place and its people, including seminal works on Jamaica, Cuba, and Nashville. He is also a novelist.

    Stealing Fortune’s Brick falls into the latter category. Set in modern-day London and rooted in post-colonial British/Chinese history, Stealing Fortune’s Brick traces a brick of tea worth six million dollars on a journey of identity and personal discovery. It’s a tangled web of deception and betrayal – reward and punishment – love and murder, and ultimately self-realization.

    For Stephen’s latest book cover we utilized the GT America family for its unique blend of American Gothic and European Grotesque characteristics. The typography on the cover and spine use GT America Condensed Black, while the back cover copy uses GT America Regular.
