Previously we’ve featured redesigned posters and re-imagined record and book covers, this time we’re focusing on the work of graphic designer Julian Montague. He has taken the cover design idea a step further, his creations are entirely fake from the worn-looking designs to the imaginative titles.
You have to applaud Mr Montague for just coming up with a unique title for each design, that is quite an achievement in itself. Collectively the book designs are called Volumes from an Imagined Intellectual History of Animals Architecture and Man. Julian tells us on his website about the influence behind the record cover designs “They are inspired, in part, by Ronald Clyne’s work for Smithsonian Folkways in the 60s and 70s”.
Here we have a few of his designs, if you want to see the whole collection wander over to his website The Montague projects, it’s well worth a visit.
