This Crime and Punishment poster is created using the first 4 chapters of the book.
Crime and Punishment follows the powerful psychological journey of a young student named Raskolnikov as he contemplates his desire to commit a heinous murder. When he finally carries through his awful crime, Raskolnikov finds himself mentally eaten alive by guilt and a desire to share the details of his terrible wrongdoing with another person. Believing himself to be suspected and hunted by the police, Raskolnikov finally counters with unexpected reactions which leads to an astounding ending full of redemption and forgiveness.
With Dostoyevsky’s suspenseful words, this illustration literally incarcerates the spirit of Crime and Punishment with its portrayal of Raskolnikov’s crime as weighed against his punishment. In this art print, a scale stands firm with an axe hanging from the left and a ball and chain hanging from the right; both these objects are evenly weighed and equal to one another, suggesting that the punishment fits the crime.
