This book cover uses a sans serif type-face, referencing modernism and progressive design, but also alters the lay-out of the text for added impact. The hyphen in To-Morrow, in addition to the tilted angle of the text gives the text motion and indicates moving forward. The cover has also taken the bold move to only use text on the cover. Usurping images at this time was still a fairly bold move, and marked Faber and Faber, the publisher of this book, out as a cutting-edge publisher.
