Image: Digital Book Covers Final 3

A man casts his shadow on the ground. The text mimics
the form of the figure and gives the cover a depth of space
as if witnessing a crime scene. The red letters of the author
foreshadow a murder, giving it an ominous tone.

The image invokes confusion and curiosity.
Almost taking form, but remaining ambiguous,
the viewer is forced to compromise and accept its
formless shapes.

The hexagons spiral down into an abyss,
suggesting an endless hole.
It gives the viewer an unsettling feeling,
as if looking down into a dark well.
