故事概要是蘇維埃調查隊要求日本俘虜從火山底下找到地道通往日本,過程中雙方在地底進行了追逐、經歷飢餓與苦痛的籠罩,並看見了早該在遠古滅絕的生物,如恐龍,竟還在地底存活著……
所以我畫了一個山頂貌似爪子/利牙的火山,火山的倒影直覺式地象徵了「地底」,倒影下方更可直接被視作獸爪,在倒影兩旁被切斷的文字塊則是模擬「穿越地底」這個狀態,最後輔以大片網狀營造囚禁、隔離的氛圍。   
而與中文書名僅差在「獸」字寫法的日文書名「地底獣國」,以小字級的印刷體壓在標準字上,一方面加強了標準字的閱讀性,視覺上也增添了特色。
This is a novel about the Soviet investigation team asked the Japanese captives to find a tunnel to Japan underneath the volcano. In the process, the two sides chased underground, experienced hunger and pain, and discovered creatures that should have been extinct in ancient times, such as dinosaurs, still alive underground...
This is why I drew a volcano with claws/sharp teeth on top. The reflection of the volcano intuitively symbolizes the “underground”. The bottom of the reflection can be directly regarded as animal claws. The text blocks cut off on both sides of the reflection simulated the state of “passing through the underground”. The design is finally supplemented by a large mesh to create an atmosphere of imprisonment and isolation.
The kanji of the Japanese book title, which is only different from the Chinese title by the character “獣”, I put it on the custom-made logotype by small size print font, in order to enhances readability and adds visual features.
在內封的正面與背面,分別以火山(與其倒影)的轉向來象徵地面和地底的兩種視角,正面即是地面視角,背面則是困在網內的地底視角。
On the front and back of the inside cover, the turning of the volcano (and its reflection) is used to symbolize the viewpoints of above and beneath the ground. It is the ground viewpoint on the front, and the underground viewpoint trapped in a net on the back.
