The Metamorphosis Cover + Bookbinding


Create and sew a hand bound book from scratch that is based on an existing novel. The color of the page and design choices should reflect the typography and book cover.


The book cover is a symbol of the degradation of Gregor (The main character’s) past. The rotting apple has his face on one side as well as the apple seeds, one of which has turned into a cockroach to show his progression into a vermin. The colors also help to emphasize the rotten aspect of Gregor’s life.
