Monroe High book shows unique way to use Plexiglas
Written by Jamie Chambers
In this week’s Cover Spotlight, we take a look at the 2016 yearbook from Monroe High School in Monroe, Washington.
The whole front cover of this book (seen above) is made of Plexiglas! What also makes this cover unique is the shape created to allow the top right-hand portion of the Plexiglas to show through to the endsheet.
Rather than a square or rectangle section of the printed paper to be cut away, it is a fun, diagonal shape. This same shape is repeated on the endsheets and throughout the pages of the book.
The Plexiglas allows you to see the great juxtaposition of the solid black and gray shapes of the cover against the bright, orange doodles of the endsheet.
