Here are some inspirational pieces which have informed me when designing the yearbook cover and layouts.
1 - Latacagrafica
2 - No Do
3 - Playboy
Latacagrafica's use of overlaid type with a photograph is interesting as the reader has to look beyond the title to see what the image really is.
No Do's layouts are consistent, the use of type is perfectly balanced on terms of hierarchy.
Playboy have an interesting use of borders for their DPS images, splitting the images into two yes, but avoiding the image becoming lost in the spine of the book.
