COURSE: English 727 – Digital Humanities

MEDIUM: Graphic Essay

I recreated the look and feel of a medieval manuscript in order to evoke the historical context of the book curses that my essay analyzes.

I digitally constructed the essay itself using InDesign, which allowed me to update the look of the manuscript at key moments in the paper, bring my argument of the retributive justice of book curses into the present day.
