book design

A secret coded message was incorporated into a redesigned cover for Chariots of the Gods by Erich Von Daniken, who is a major proponent of the ancient astronaut theory. The cover was devised with sustainable practice in mind - it uses minimal ink (one colour only), recycled card stock and low impact embossing processes. The design echoes the concepts explored in the book; ancient languages / glyphs, hidden messages and uncovering the “truth”.
