The project consisted of creating a book based on a chosen topic. With this in mind, we were to develop the concept around it creating both content and a consistent image style.
I based the project around the concept of the Japanese sushi tradition and the zen aspect of it. The Zen Sushi book offers an overview of the tradition and cultural aspects of sushi, its ingredients and the craft behind its preparation. To reflect Japanese aesthetics the book is bound using Japanese stitching style, and throughout, katakana characters are used to describe common terms of the sushi culture.
