The importance of small rebellions told through typography and minimal illustration, based on the dialogue from the film Alone in Berlin.
Part of the story’s potency lies in the fact that this is a kind of resistance that anyone can imagine carrying out, however timid, however lonely, however secretly convinced that its effects are likely to be minimal. By focusing in on the detail, it is clear that no matter how small the rebellion, it doesn’t make it any less admirable.

Awareness campaign to create a positive atmosphere around bedtime and sleep for young children.

I want to have a discussion with the reader about the annoyances of the internet and computers, presented in a physical format. As the internet is never-ending, you may not know how long it will take you to read a short article - what with hyperlinks and pop-ups. The physical format is to bring to light the extensive time that can be put into reading a short piece. I have also included an article about distraction at the end of the book.
The format of my book is 15x9 inches - laptop screen dimensions, with a hardback cover to give it the illusion of being something substantial. It is japanese bound to make it feel important. The paper stock changes to one of lesser quality halfway through to mirror the change in experience one has when using the internet.
My intention is not to annoy or provoke the reader, but to remind them of the problems and distractions we face, and how we can overcome them to better our experience.
