As a designer, we’re taught that image is everything, and there’s no doubt that the cover is *very* important (in fact my friends in school know that one of my greatest fears is getting a bad cover. I have nightmares, I swear!) But there’s another element of the first impression. The title.
Titles might be one of my favorite parts of books. With a love of words, I’d put a good title up there with a good cover. A good title not only intrigues me, but it gives me the first taste of the book’s style. The Name of the Wind is a very different book than The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time or You Suck. So I’m curious, what are some of your favorite titles (not books, necessarily, or covers, just titles)?
