We often chock up the non-conforming pixelations on a digital photo or image as nothing more than arbitrary, technological malfunctions. But are they more than that? The creators behind the coffee table book Glitch: Designing Imperfection, explore this through a collection of thought-provoking digital artworks containing so-called ‘errors’.

More than two hundred glitch images created both by accident and experiment are showcased in Glitch: Designing Imperfection, which imparts the interesting idea that seemingly random mistakes can actually be “fascinating designs that represent human intention and mechanical failure,” says Doug Black of CoolHunting.com.
