12 Free Amazing Fonts for Interior Book Design

We all know the saying: “Don’t judge a book by its cover” – even though some of us are guilty of it.

(Okay, maybe a lot of us. Myself included.)

But I can’t deny that I’m also guilty of judging a book by its interior too. As a designer, typography is everything. It makes or breaks a piece, and really sets the tone for the narrative just as much as the cover sets it as well, in my opinion. I remember going to the book store one day, cracking open a book that I kept seeing and hearing about everywhere, and immediately closed it and put it back on the shelf once I saw the font. It was awful on the eyes, and it didn’t help that it was also coloured slightly.

Fonts are mucho importante! So I’ve compiled a list of some of my favourite free fonts for the interior, both to be used as the body of the text and as chapter headings. I went for that classic, traditional font for the body, as that’s my favourite style. I think that type of serif is easy on the eyes, comfortable and enjoyable to look at, also giving the book a classier vibe. I love calligraphy and handwritten fonts, so I threw some of those in for the chapter headings to also go the more traditional route instead of modern. 🙂  Enjoy!
