Tanatopedia is an encyclopedia with entries on death, with illustrations by Caroline Murta. The crowdfunded project was designed to make the book sumptuous, a physical object that does not go unnoticed due to its size or theme. Sober, elegant and dark – words that define the aesthetic used for the design of the cover and inside.
The design includes illustrated drop caps and column-organized entries. The flickering terminals of VVS Nobleman, a typeface family chosen especially for the entries, refer to the mystery that the book evokes. The text is set with Adobe Jenson, with Cloister Initials. The cover additionally features Orpheus and Mrs Eaves.
