Mats Ottdal: Design

Some pretty unconventional designs grace the front of book covers here by Mats Ottdal who clearly disregards the tendency of front cover layouts being systematic and unimaginative - instead creating a kind of visual play in the variations of sizes in lettering yet keeping everything within the margins of a rectangle or a square or any other shape that is deliberately kept within perimeters to impress the viewer further. One book is covered almost entirely in the white, capricious typeface and looks just full, complete and makes me judge the book by its cover space being exceptionally well used.
