Cover Shot

This exhibition looks at the use of photography in book cover design. MoDA’s collection of twentieth century books shows the variety of ways photography can be used, from single shots to photomontage, and from black and white to full colour.

By looking at the range of moods and effects that can be created through the use of photography, this exhibition explores the medium’s diversity. Photography is still an important medium in book covers today and is often used in conjunction with other design methods such as hand illustration and digital manipulation.
