Created in Illustrator. The debossing on the paper was done in Photoshop.
To create this I pretty much scanned through the whole book of 1 Samuel and wrote down the imagery that stood out to me. Then I tried to pile as much of that imagery as I could in this graphic. The book of 1 Samuel records the beginning of Samuel's life (he was a prophet and judge over Israel) the rise and fall of King Saul, and the rise of King David.
I think this is my first try at an "overprint" look. I hope you enjoy.
The font came from this site: Lost Type [link]
They have lots of cool fonts.
