    Packaging design for Skyrim booklet
Class Assignment: design a book layout for subject of our own choice,
making sure typeface and layout match the aesthetic of the book.

Now the assignment was only required to be a book or booklet focusing on layout, but I got the idea to make a book like one might find lying about in the Elder Scrolls game Skyrim. Instead of stopping at the booklet I decided to turn it into a packaging idea, a sort of coffee table curiosity, one I'm sure any fan of Skyrim would want to have. So after I complied "the Adventurer's Guide to Skyrim" edited from various Skyrim Wikipedia articles I went to work on the binding and the box. Below you'll find the complete package of what I ended up with.

Cigar box sanded, then burned, and finally a single coat of finisher.
Note left to the reader, addressing the contents of the box
Booklet printed on Linen paper then aged with coffee stains and heat, then bound between hard cover book with string
The complete package, featuring the Skyrim map that came with preorder and a few Yen to pass as Septims.
