    For this academic project at ESAD Matosinhos, the main goal was the creation of an editorial object with a neutral, timeless and contemporary design, since it was a book with more than 6000 years, still being used today. The Art of War, by Sun Tzu, is a book that offers the reader a set of tips, rules and ways to beat the enemy without resorting to violence. After analyzing the book, I chose to work on the strategy concept associated with the map object and, for the cover I chose to draw a grid, where each reader can paste red circles, as a metaphor for each one to be able to create his strategy, thus giving rise to an infinite set of unique and different layers. The typography on the cover was worked in a circular form, resembling the representation of an armillary sphere. For visual content, I used images of wind and heat forecasts, as well as topographical representations of various terrains of China, also placing their coordinates.
