In this book, letters are given a surface to act on while they are transforming into other shapes. Just as it happened with Franz Kafka’s Gregor Samsa. Thus, among other things, typographic illustrations can be discovered – including fusions of letters and fonts of opposing characteristics. The three acts of Kafka's “The Metamorphosis” run parallel in three columns, which are also interpretations of the three spaces in which the characters move within the story. In this way the reader can experience a visual-playful way to convey the content of the story. Since the acts convey different contents, the continuous text sometimes becomes more incomplete or is blackened. It is symbolized as the dissolution of the family and the expulsion of Gregor.
