The Zodiac is Speaking

  • The Zodiac is Speaking is a conceptual and expressive book inspired by the Zodiac killer that terrorized San Francisco in the 1960’s and 70’s. Drawing inspiration from the anonymous notes sent to police officers and reporters the design mimics the unstable and imperfect qualities of the killer themselves. Alongside the clips from the killers notes is forensic psychiatrist Dr. Michael Stone’s scale of evil and his definitions of the qualities of such killers.  Dr. Stone’s scale was highly influenced by Dante Alighieri’s Inferno therefore every definition features a quote from the Inferno that speaks to the tone of the definition as well as the note from the killer. The Zodiac is Speaking gives viewers and readers an insight in the evil of the mind of the Zodiac killer.
