A zine inspired by Dante's Inferno

Project Brief

 

Objective:

Create a group project inspired by Dante’s Inferno, specifically the nine circles of hell. Incorporate hand-lettering in a compelling way.

 

My group and I chose to make an experimental, hand-lettered zine with different types of paper. I chose to illustrate lust and limbo. Limbo became the table of contents as it was a metaphor for being in hell but not quite as deep into the book as the other eight circles. I also hand-lettered stanzas of the book as pacing pages as well as the back cover.
