The Past Inside the Present


We created a set of two photobooks for Manchester based photographer Bill Ayres. “The Past Inside the Present” and “Will the Night Last Forever?” are both A5 sized and digitally printed in a limited run of 50 copies. Each photobook came with a lithographed A6 postcard print.

A system runs throughout the photobooks which can easily be applied to new editions in the series. The system comprises of a grid, one typeface, and a method that involves taking colour from the images to be used throughout said edition.
