The Metamorphosis

Trabajo para la asignatura “Gourmet Typography” de SVA que apareció en el libro Type Rules!: The Designer’s Guide to Professional Typography de Ilene Strizver como ejemplo de contoured text.

The contoured text on the right strikingly mirrors the shape of the cornered bug on the lefts. Shifting baselines and erratic breaks in the title further reflect the bizarre, fantastic turn of events in this famous short story by Frank Kafka in which a man wakes up as a bug (or cockroach).
