Illustration / Graphic Design

Problem:

As a design project, I was challenged to typeset a book in a new and creative way utilizing my illustrations and typography.

Solution:

As a fan of The Call of Cthulhu, I was intrigued by the idea of creating an artifact that was described in the book by the main character. The story was a collection of articles, illustrations and interviews. My design utilized the look of each item described, which I recreated visually. The type I used was fixed space font set on sheets of paper bound in a leather case. Each chapter of the book has a collection of items that the author described on the title page. I researched not just the descriptions in the story, but historic imagery for the artifacts.
