Book Layout Inspiration
October 24, 2013 § Leave a comment
I took some books out from the library that had a particular focus on the layout of photographs to give me some inspiration for my book layout.
The books are:
Double Take: Portraits from the Keith Medley Archive by Mark Durden & Ken Grant
Alfons Mucha by Josef Moucha & Jiri Rapek
Edward Steichen by William A Ewing
Some of them used a lot of white, negative space, where as other pages had full bleed to the edges particularly with the Double Take book. The use of black borders was also quite repetitive. I noticed a lack of colour, perhaps because the photos were all black and white but the layout of the books contained no colour either. There were some captions but the majority of the focus was the photo which covered most of the page.
