Cover Art

There comes a day when a comic strip reader is so struck by the cover image of an album that he sees it as part and parcel of the album illustrations. When that happens it’s for life. Cover art must find a tricky balance between the author’s vision and what the editor, art director and head of marketing want. Is its sole to purpose to catch the eye of the prospective purchaser or should it be a work of art in itself, an accurate representation of the graphic narrative? This interactive exhibition, set to make waves on the social media, will bring visitors face to face with this dilemma which authors and editors come up against on a regular basis.

Curator: Valérie Constant
