    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    In the modern era, photography was discovered by writers as a medium for self-presentation - and by publishers as a vehicle for advertising. Drawing on publishing house brochures and book covers, this work systematically investigates the iconography of the author and the meaning of author photos at the intersection between efforts to communicate content and boost sales.
