Little Giant Book of Superstitions Redesign
When creating this book my job was to take a plethora of information with different styles and to reinvent a system to display it. My goal is to create something that reads as something that reads clearly and is strictly gridded but also has a personality and beauty of its own. I took the opportunity of working with subject matter that has archaic roots to create illustrative elements that embellish the text
like an updated illuminated manuscript.

I have an attachment to the idea of superstitions aspects of ritual. I took the elements of the genre--largely referencing magic and alchemy--and came up with decorations of text, titlepages, indexes, and the cover. In this way I seek to elevate the textbook to the status of a collectable.
