Map of Oslo for Jo Nesbo's "The Son"

Client: Random House | December 2013 | Adobe Illustrator
Publishers Random House commissioned me to produce a map of Oslo for the endpapers of Jo Nesbo's novel "The Son" (published April 2014). The map includes specific locations mentioned in the story as well as outlying areas featured on a smaller inset map of the wider metropolitan area. I employed a colour and typographic scheme which echoed the monochromatic jacket design and the sombre tone of the story.
