"And still the figure had no face by which he might know it; even in his dreams, it had no face, or one that baffled him and melted before his eyes; and thus it was that there sprang up and grew apace in the lawyers mind a singularly strong, almost an inordinate, curiosity to behold the features of the real Mr Hyde. If he could but once set eyes on him, he thought the mystery would lighten and perhaps roll altogether away, as was the habit of mysterious things when well examined."
The volume contains the complete novel "The strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" by Robert Louis Stevenson in its original English. After setting up the text with the computer, some letters are replaced by special symbols, for example a circle for the letter "O", a square for the letter "M", a cross for the letter "T", a triangle for the letter "A" and so on. At the beginning of the text, only a few single letters are replaced. But this infection of the text increases more and more (analog to the plot of the story), so that at the end the symbols dominate the typography. Although the text is treated like this, it is legible even to the last page. Design and typography: Ines von Ketelhodt. Computer-set and offset, bookprinting paper, 72 pages, printed paperboard.
