Let's Talk Endpapers

I’ve always said that the most effective book designs involve some level of surprise. This might be something hidden within the image on the cover, some quirky juxtaposition of imagery, or to do with the production techniques. One of my favourite ways that designers provide surprise is through creative endpapers, where the viewer opens the book and finds something entirely unexpected and delightful inside the front page.
