The Myth of Sisyphus - When the letters meet the story

'The Myth of Sisyphus' is a philosophical essay by Albert Camus. To communicate the core essence of the writing through typography, I tried to pick up the very right words from the essay and played with them. Also, to fullfil another mission of the project, which was deconstruct and reconstruct the book, I made the form of the book itself represent 'infinity' which is the part of the concept of the essay, too.

Keywords from the essay:

- Push it up, push it up, push it up 
- The moment of conscious 
- Torture accomplishes nothing 
- Each atom of that stone 
- Each mineral flake of that night filled mountain 
- In itself forms a world 
- Fate from infinite to finite 
- That is an hour of consciousness 

The type was set by hand at the Art Center College of Designs' Archetype Press.
