Multiple-Perspective Mystery Novels

Design three paperback covers which have a cohesive look as a set or series. Use only three spot colors and adhere to other restrictions to design the book covers with a typographic approach.

I came up with the idea of mystery novels which are based on one murder case, but written from three different perspectives: the victim, the murderer and the detective. I visualized those different perspectives in the metaphor of a puzzle and created a typographic illustration of a three-dimensional cube that rotated and changed subjects with each cover and portrayed the mood of this urban mystery.
