Picturing Fiction

Exploring the relationship between fiction paperbacks and their covers

My undergraduate dissertation ‘Picturing Fiction: How the Covers of Fiction Paperbacks Frame the Reading Experience’ explored the phenomenology of reading - how reading actually works, and the impact of a book’s cover on the experience of reading it.

For this bound edition, the cover is every page of text layered together to form a single image. By literally being the text, this cover is a pure representation of the content.
