Does anyone know what font this is?
some characters seem to be created just for the cover, but i'm quite sure i've seen a very similar font before, but i can't seem to remember what it is.
Many of the characters differ (a, s, etc.) which leads me to believe that it was hand drawn.
I agree, and it doesn't even seem close to any faux-Arabic fonts I could find.

The most similar font I could find, stylistically, to this (and I don't think it's too close) was Arabolical by Geoffrey Johnston. 'Arabian' choices at MyFonts and FontShop were not even this similar.
On the back of the book it says "Title lettering by Dermot Flynn / Dutch Uncle"
