As a self-publishing author, you choose your book's design. What makes a truly great book cover, one that will captivate readers?
Over the next few weeks we will take occasional looks at books we feel offer good examples of creative and artistic answers to this question. Here’s the first.
This engaging coffee table book by Nakki Goranin, American Photobooth, combines text about the history of photobooths with infinitely varied portraits taken in photobooths.
Images: These images fascinate, and they reveal a wide range of human emotions and uninhibited expressions. After all, photobooths were the only place where amateurs could pose without the influence of a photographer.
Composition: The 4x4 grid creates a structured framework to compare and contrast repeated, similar images. Unlike a photo collage or montage, this structure guides the eye.
