Malmberg Publishers asked Roquefort to design the covers for their new history teaching method books. This method emphasizes ‘historical thinking’ and takes children on a journey along the general timeline of history, discovering the origins of historical narratives and teaching kids to take a critical stance.
For the covers, we decided to use iconic, historical images. On the back of the cover you will find information about the context in which this image was taken. Why does this image exemplify this specific historical period? How did people respond to the image when it was made? How has our view on and reading of the image changed over time?
