Book design: illustrated crime stories (diploma project)

This illustrated book was the central part of my diploma thesis. It shows crime as a part of our everyday life and as a social phenomenon. The arena is my hometown Düsseldorf, which became witness to numerous unusual crimes during the past 100 years. The factual texts have been visually interpreted, providing it with catchy illustrations. Together they invite one on an exciting travel through time exploring the history of the city.
