The Abhorsen series is a wildly successful line of books written by Garth Nix. Throughout the years the covers have been changed, but the brand itself has never gotten any expansion in the way of official merchandise or special editions.

The Abhorsen Trilogy

custom designed

typography

Given the unique nature of this project, a custom font was designed to reflect germanic calligraphy and a more elegant script era. It also incorporates a couple skulls and flourishes, speaking to the book aesthetic as well as an impactful title for a graphic novel.
 

A custom font "Old Kingdom Display" is an edited version of Cabazon, inspired by calligraphy and illuminated script to reflect the medieval / steampunk aesthetic of the book settings.

& illustrations

A more modern illustration style is used to contrast and soften the formal nature of the title, while still remaining accessible to younger readers. The designs are extended to a box set, book marks and a book bag that are exclusive releases for the series.

Every design and detail of this project was hand made, and we all love a peek behind the curtain on *how* things are made.

So take a gander at what the scrappy start looked like!
