The above page shows how I plan to manipulate my images, first starting off by cropping them and then finally taking the colour out and changing the contrast of the black and white. I plan to do this with all my images and impose a separate colour over the top.
I thought these two book may interest some, the first one is called 'Magazine Covers', its shows a number of good examples of front covers and details the information behind them, may also help to trigger some ideas for my own book cover.
The second is 'Take Ivy' the reason I have included this particular book is not because of its content (deferentially worth a look), but because it has some very interesting use of space in some of its pages and has some good examples of using full page imagery with text.
Some of the pages I have created after my initial research, the first page is showing a layout from Wolverhampton city magazine, I thought it was best to look into the magazine because that's what the subject of my own lay outs are about, the second is from a book entitled 'I'm one', the reason I've included it is to show the use of imagery with text.
