This fingerprint logo will be used for the covers of Noir Nation books, the back and spine. While we still love the logo with the scared eye and the guy with the gun, it was not reproducing well in print. We wanted something simple that very clearly expressed what Noir Nation is about.
To be sure, there are many reasons why people get fingerprinted, for example when they apply for teaching licenses or undergo background checks. But in the minds of many, inky prints are associated most closely with police bookings, which are the result of criminal accusations. Hence: Fingerprints = Crime = Noir Nation.
