Das Autorenfoto in Buch und Buchwerbung
Autorinszenierung und Kanonisierung mit Bildern
[The Photo of the Author: The Photographic Staging of Authors in the Paratext of Publishing]
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.
