The Metamorphosis- Franz Kafka
The Metamorphosis is a very modern short-story that takes place in the early 1900s. The author creates a strangely familiar setting at first - daily routine, train stations, work and regular family matter. When suddenly, peculiar and enigmatic turn of events engulf the reader into the unexplainable but captivating storyline of personal salvation. This is a reading book designed to magnify and elevate overall experience and mystique of the characters and their affairs.
The main purpose for this project was to design a modern book that enhances and compliments the dark, yet, vidid storyline. The challenge was do it only using shades of black and white. Matte black package, double-sided cover and silver page inserts create a very modern look and feel for the book.
