Research – Design strategies for contemporary photobooks
As I am considering making a book for my publication I need to consider carefully the content and design of my book. How many pages will it be? How many of my photographs will be included? How much text should I include? Should I include any archive material that I have collected, what would be the copyright issues of this?
To help me decide on the possible design and layout of any book I plan to make I need to do some research and look at a number of contemporary photobooks to see how other practitioners have approached book making. I have listed below the books I have considered and for each one make comments on their layout, design, size and conceptual approach.
