I'm so font of this book

Published April 07, 2017

I was so happy to finally get together with my ace designer, Maria Nicholas, in London yesterday. We've been collaborating on the revised and expanded edition of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions (abbathecompleterecordingsessions.com) for well over two years, but only through electronic communication between New York City and Stockholm. As I write in the Acknowledgments section in the book, Maria "has been 100 per cent committed to each and every aspect of the project from the moment she came on board. Her moral support and unfailingly good spirits when the author sometimes made her work more difficult than it should have been, has made all the difference in the world".

I'm particularly pleased with the font Maria chose for the book. In such a text-heavy tome, it's vital that the font used makes the text reader-friendly, and I think Maria accomplished just that. When you open the book, you feel invited to start reading.

Maria recently published a blog about working on the book and the fonts used. The blog also  offers a few sneak peeks at pages from the book, which may be of interest to you if you haven't purchased the book yet. Read Maria's essay here.
