maltese-falcon-end maltese-falcon-title-stilltype

the typography used here in The Long Embrace is very similar to the one i want to use its very simple and clear and (depending on the text and background color) would be perfectly legible. The feel it gives is reminiscent of 1930s and 40s black and white films like The Maltese Falcon. The title and end sequence above are two different typefaces but both are necessary in that they are conveying different moods to their audience a beginning and an end. The typography on the covers would be a good way for me to have individual designs yet let the readership know that they are part of a series.
