Sacred Geometry in the known universe

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”

Die Cut Reveals

The main portion of the book features a number of die cut reveals, that give you one look at the subject matter initially, but upon turning the page reveal another look through a different lens, below is a die cut being used to show the correlation between the interior and exterior structure of crystals.

Section Headers / splash page

Each section of the book contains a page break, wherein minimal copy is used in order to provide a visual break for the reader. Since this subject is heavily rooted in academia this experience is designed to be visually appealing and provide a rest for the eyes.

The End

The end of the book consists of a folder, which contains a poster that I built in to the back cover. Inside this folder is a commemorative poster that would come with the book. On the poster poster is a completion of a quote that starts at the front cover, persists on the back cover, and ends on the poster.
