I designed this book to feel basic and educational. It consists of twelve articles from Wikipedia that I felt deserved a better presentation. These are topics that relate to death and human extinction. I included all content and images, and presented the articles in specific sequence. This project later grew into Hollow.

This article contained no images

Each article chapter has its own color which I randomly picked. I assigned a hue of color based on feeling and how it sat with the topic. I used a two column grid that the text strictly follows, whereas images can break the grid. I did not want my design to distract from the content; I simply chose two typefaces and random assortments of color.
