Revisionist Margin

I was so happy for my teaching colleague E to wise me up to Errata Editions – publisher of out of print photography books – an amazing resource for our students, and for me.
Of the examples shared, I kept returning to Keld Helmer-Petersen’s ‘122 Colour Photographs’, a bold collection of bright and banal. Content aside, the layout is striking jumping as it does in size and position across the double spread in a manner I couldn’t have imagined I'd countenance as a slightly fascistic formatter. But it works.

Keld Helmer-Petersen’s ‘122 Colour Photographs’ 136 p, 9.5 x 7.5'', 75 Colour illustrations

Layouts from six spreads
Maybe I’ll learn to relax my rigid margins a little.
