As part of his 2010 site-specific installation, Secondary Occupants Collected & Observed at Black & White Gallery, Julian Montague invented a  intellectual history of pest control through covers of fictitious paperbacks.

In addition to the covers the installation , which examined multiple aspects of animal/architecture engagement, included a rotten garden shed, 48 portrait banners and an assemblage of different specimens found and multiple photographs taken in the process of researching wildlife and architecture.

Montague’s appreciation for book cover design goes much deeper. Aside from his creations above he also maintains the Daily Book Graphics Project, a blog where he posts “some sort of graphic element (mostly covers) from a book.”
