This book, Sacred Geometry in the Known Universe is a combination of found imagery, digital collage, and digital illustration. The goal was to take an academic subject such as sacred geometry and make it visually appealing and entertaining. Three different stocks were used in conjunction with multiple tip-ins throughout the book to create a tactile experience that would engage a viewer from front to back.
The inside cover, the back cover, and the poster here are all linked.
The inside cover contains the quote “As above so below”
The back cover contains the quote “As within so without”
The poster - located in a folder that is self contained in the back cover of the book finishes the quote, with “As the universe, so the soul”
