sleeve research

Although it is early in the project i have started looking at ways i can case my books, what options there are, how to keep them neat etc. i have found some simple yet effective ones that not only keep the book neat and tidy but creates the opportunity to add another design element to the book or even for me to experiment with textures

Below is a perfect example of how Stefan Sagmeister has used the outside of a book to draw attention. You can see how every inch of the exterior of the book has been considered and interacts with the audience. from the two tone elements on the pull back sleeve to the words revealed by flicking back the pages, on one side it says 'made you look' and on the other there are three images of bones. The covering of the book is so successful and intriguing that i would buy this book regardless of the content.
