The cover design is based on one of my favorite books House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. The book is not your typical haunted house horror story. It's layered with secrets, codes (Morse) and mystery. It’s a labyrinth in itself, written in a maze-like way. I tried to create a simple, striking image in red, black, and white. A house with an enormous lock to contain all its secrets, surrounded by leaf-like shapes that form a pattern similar to that of a labyrinth. Underneath the book title is Morse code which is a reference to a chapter in the book where some of the main characters hear a knocking from somewhere deep inside the house, a knocking patterned after the Morse code emergency signal SOS (save our souls). Considering the book isn't your ordinary horror novel, I tried not to make it too 'dark' but kind of left it open to the viewer's interpretation as to which genre it actually is. The design was mainly hand drawn and then run through illustrator and photoshop. All in all I'm very pleased with the end result and hope other people will like it too.
