Picture this: The shape of covers to come

Here at Getty Images we’re lucky enough to see a great range of inspirational book covers every month.  We see designers using images from all areas of our collections, from the contemporary creative through real-world editorial images to illustration and iconic shots from the archive.

One motif that captures the imagination is that of a strong geometric shape. We are seeing some great effects using contemporary blends of illustration, photography and text. We have pulled out a taster of our circle-based images, with a mix of subjects and styles, conceptual, architectural, people-based, with copy space and without.
