Eleanor Crow : Lettering at Faber&Faber

Eleanor Crow, a senior cover designer at Faber&Faber, takes an overview of book cover lettering from across the firm’s eighty year history, using examples from its distinctive archive as well as more recent commissions.

Educated at Edinburgh College of Art (BA Drawing & Painting), and Central Saint Martins (MA in Communication Design: Illustration), an interest in books led to a career in cover design. After seven years as an in-house designer for Cape, Chatto, Harvill Secker and Vintage at Random House, she then became Art Director at the Folio Society in 2007. She joined Faber in 2009, where she designs covers for fiction, non-fiction and the arts lists, working with photographers, illustrators, typographers and lettering artists.

Eleanor is also an illustrator, and her work has been featured on It’s Nice That and in Étapes magazine. She has been a visiting lecturer at a range of illustration and design courses, including Edinburgh College of Art, Central Saint Martins MACD (Illustration), Brighton, UEA Norwich, Southampton, Winchester School of Art, and the School of Art & Design at Prague College.
