Witchcraft and magic among the Azande
Visual book design

2019

It is the visual edition of the book by E.E. Pritchard.
The purpose of the visual book is to emphasise
the reading experience through graphical devices and new visual connections.
I tried to find a solution that could combine these two parts, thanks to specially designed layouts
and the use of archive photographs of the author himself  to amplify the scenario. Every design choice was to make the reader relive the author's experience and demonstrate the experience
and the importance of the text  on an anthropological and social level even in the today.
The aim of the design is to convey to the reader
the author's desire to overcome mental and cultural limits, to get to know the alien, the novelty
and the mystery.
