The Doors

The aim of this project was to create a children's book about the subject of death. The story should make the reader comfortable with the subject of death, since the sooner one's confronted with it, the easier it becomes to deal with it later as an inevitable part of life. The book tells the story of a little guy who is the son of the Grim Reaper and is guarding the door of the Western culture. The main character proceeds to explore what lies behind the other doors and by doing so he discovers new cultures and beliefs about death.

Each door has a different colour, representing a different chapter. The reader can choose which door the main character should go through by turning to the page and chapter with the colour of the door they've chosen. By including this aspect in the book, the story maintains interaction and the reader feels involved in the adventure. The book is consequently divided into three chapters, each exploring a different culture from the Western one. In the end, the main character widens his horizon and makes new friends. The story is not meant to scare the readers but rather create a conversation around the subject and educate them.
