    PROJECT DESCRIPTION I was invited by the Hungarian Society of Writers, Critics, and Literary Translators to redesign the cover of a freely-chosen book by Péter Esterházy. I chose the novel Függő the most striking formal character of which is it being a single 180-page long sentence. Taking this as my starting point, I came up with the idea to cover the entire inside and outside of the jacket with text: the complete content of the book, set in 3.18 pt size type.
