    1. Thanks for enlightening me (the author) about the fonts!

    2. Always great to hear from authors! Thanks for stopping by, Paulette.

      Neuland licht nowadays is probably best known for its use (in customized form) for Jurassic Park. Who knows – maybe the designer was familiar with your book, and Neuland licht stuck with her as “the scary font”?!
