CONOSCO presents a group exhibition marking the launch of our new artistic initiative aimed at challenging our audience to see differently.
In Cold Blood
Redesign for the book cover of Truman Capote's, In Cold Blood. The 1966 book detailing the brutal 1959 murders of Herbert Clutter, a wealthy farmer from Holcomb, Kansas, his wife and their two children. When Capote learned of the quadruple murder before the killers were captured, he decided to travel to Kansas and write about the crime. He was accompanied by his childhood friend and fellow author Harper Lee, and together they interviewed local residents and investigators assigned to the case and took thousands of pages of notes. The killers, Richard "Dick" Hickock and Perry Smith, were arrested not long after the murders, and Capote ultimately spent six years working on the book.
The design focuses on the murders using the imagery from both their various tattoos that reflect the themes of the book to create an encapsulating collage.
