Draft Book 1 to Draft book 2

So I have had a second go at my book organisation and selection and have included the second draft here. 2 Draft book layout.

You will see the major differences:

  • The first is that I have added some copy to the cover but left out the imagery. This is because I don’t think I can work on the cover imagery until I have the content and structure right for the book.
  • I have introduced a title Paralysis: Documented, Experienced Imagined and then left out any section headings and just allowed the individual chapter headings to speak for themselves.
  • The third change has been to apply symbols as chapter separators as a way of giving the books some thematic unification.
  • Lastly the selection of images has changed. I won’t go through each change here – rather you can see the imagery in the draft PDF.

I think I am on the right approach but still having trouble in finding a way of unifying such diverse imagery in one book. I will continue to play with images laid out on my desk. However I am beginning to understand that all the issues of context in the book – eg  structure, imagery, order and layout, are as important as the images selected as its those things that imbue the images with the particular meaning.
