The Berlin Wall

This was a project completed in the second term of first year. The unit title was “words in conflict”, and after a trip to Berlin I decided to have the wall as my focus. I wanted to show a very human side of the wall - how East and West Berliners felt at the time. I split the layout of the spreads into the left and right pages by using a coptic stitch method, the right pages showed thoughts and quotes from East Berliners whilst the left pages had those from the West Berliners. The physical form of the book itself featured a stone cover to resemble the harsh feel of the wall, with art found on the wall transferred onto the inside covers.
