    Printed in blood-red, Bradley unfurls its creepy qualities on the covers for a paperback series of horror anthologies. The three volumes were published by Corgi Books in 1977/1978, with cover art by the great surrealist artist John Holmes. Bradley brings the gothic feel of blackletter to the table, without the legibility issues of proper fraktur or textura faces. Secondary copy is set in Futura Bold and Extra Bold Condensed.

    See also Bradley in use for Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein (1973) and for Interview With The Vampire (1976).
