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.
