An alternative book cover design for the iconic novel 'In Cold Blood' by Truman Capote, in which he investigated the murders of the Clutter family. I wanted to represent the chilling story in the cover by putting the viewer into the position of the family. Using a reflective mirror surface behind the main cover, achieves the chilling realisation of the viewer that they were just a 'normal' regular family and it really could have happened to anyone. I also wanted to stay away from cliche horror covers, by not using red and black. Instead creating a feeling of isolation in the cool white and blue colour scheme.
