Reinterpret a novel

Take a classic novel and reinterpret it. I decided to reinterpret the novel Sybil written by Flora Rheta Schreiber. The novel is based on a young woman who has 16 different personalities. The story is told using simple shapes and colour. I wanted to strip it back to a really simplistic form. I broke down the 16 personalities as circles that range in shape and size depending on their characteristics. The book is partly made up of perforated french folds. Within these french folds reveals the part of the story where Sybil changes personality. Only at the end of the book does it tell the reader to rip open the perforated folds to reveal the whole story. The reader only finds out about the 16 personalities at the end of the book.
