映畫術 その演出はなぜ心をつかむのか
   鹽田明彥/著

本書的主題和副書名皆強調導戲、作者本身也是導演,因此設計上就著重在導演的角度,以導演筒作為發想元素、拆解成正封上的幾何(封底、內封和書腰也刻意放上了導演筒的圖示),再以劇照的重複來構成電影作為影格拼貼的蒙太奇意象。
而壓縮或擴張變形的幾何,亦是象徵導演的各種角度,並特別對人物表情做不同的遮蔽,以暗示表情提供觀者的想像空間:演員的臉、表情、動作即是本書所探討的重點之一。
最後,幾何中融入的日文章節名稱,在內封與幾何圖形分別拆開至封面、封底, 作為讓讀者發現封面上碎散日文之來源的小線索。
The main theme and subtitle of the book emphasize film directing. The author himself is a director, therefore the design focuses on the director’s perspective. The director’s megaphone is used as the imaginative element, disassembled into the geometry on the front cover of book jacket (the megaphone icon are also placed on the back cover, the inside cover and the book tummy band deliberately). The repetition of stills are used to represent the montage of film. 
The compression, expansion, or deformation of the geometry also symbolizes the various angles of the director. And the shaded facial expressions of the characters provide the viewer with different imagination: the faces, expressions, and actions of the actors are one of the main focus of this book. 
Finally, the section titled in Japanese in the geometry is spread across the front and back of inside cover respectively, as a small clue for readers to discover the source of the broken Japanese text on the front cover of book jacket.
