PICK YOUR POISON

A booklet created for my Natural History liberal arts class, featuring a collection of six poisonous plants and historical stories of their fatal uses.

Instead of hand illustrating or using photographs of the plants, I chose to turn photographs into images that resembled hand-done prints. The color palette and overall design of the book was inspired by nature, and a modern twist on medieval bestiaries and herbal books.





Hand-bound, hand-stitched booklet measuring 6 in by 7 in.
