    The Berlin Wall 
  • This project captures the history of the Berlin Wall. The book is designed in two parts (divided like Berlin once was). The First is the history of the wall before it was torn down. The second is a documentation of the day the wall came down and what came after. Book one is large in scale and intended to be physically intimidating in appearance. Blocks of justified text and large scale quotes and extracts from speeches are there to recreate the oppressive nature of walls.

    Book two is a contrast of the first, with a more celebratory content. But keeping the same grey paper stock combined with a pure white paper helps to tie both books together. Full colour imagery of celebration around the wall also increases the positive feel to the content. Cut away sections throughout this book are there to symbolise the degradation of the East Berlin regime and the Berlin Wall Itself.
