Below is the official design for book 2 of the Death Note manga (comic) series. This style was emulated in one of my design projects.
My recreation (below) of the design style shown on the book covers of the Death Note manga series, which was made in Adobe Photoshop.

Some elements, such as the orange number 1, Viz Media logo and age rating were sourced from scans of the book cover, while a custom typeface was sourced for the title lettering.

Attention to detail was particularly evident in aspects such as the close recreation of the lettering in the background, including where the hyphenated breaks occur.

The photographs were taken by me and feature a model posing as the main character of the story (not pictured in the volume that I chose to include as an example here).
