All Work and No Play 

Book Design, Art Direction

All Work and No Play is a handmade book that illustrates the growing insanity in an overworked mind. The phrase ‘all work and no play’ is taken from Stephen King’s The Shining. Those words are the only ones that appear in the book, indicating a state of monotony and conformity. The increasingly large holes burned into the pages symbolizes an irreversible decay of sanity. As the book progresses, the words also become more chaotic. At the end, the hole has burned through the whole page.
