Why this work

“The image deals with attaching religion or meaning, this happens throughout the novel, from Hazel Motes’s anti-religious ‘Church without Christ’ to Enoch Emery’s obsession with the mummified figure. The typography explores the frantic preaching of various characters in the book, while the church-like building looms, echoing the constant struggle with faith.“
