Undiscovered Country

This book and poster series was created in response to the ISTD brief The Undiscovered Country... The brief was to design a publication that ‘visits death’ — a work that will inform and stimulate the intellect whilst pleasing the typographic designer’s eye.

The response was a book of academic writing which explores mortuary rites in a Japanese rural town and a series of four posters that fold down into booklets. Each poster represents and explains a different Japanese ritual carried out around the time of death.
