Death and the Compass Book Design

This is a book design for the Jorge Borges story, Death and the compass. A murder mystery that deals with jewish mysticism, I created several "artifacts" to illustrate the book's words.

Book Design Strategy: This is a book design based off of the Jorge Borges Story, "Death and The Compass."
A murder mystery story with hints of Jewish mysticism, the cover of this book alludes to a passage of the Torah that was found marked up among the evidence found. In order to illustrate this story, I created several artifacts
that bring the pages to life. These artifacts include: Crime scene photos, detective badges, and books that were found within the story.
