This is a type specimen book introducing ITC Officina. I wanted to do something extraordinary through an interesting story that could tell Officina font features rather than the obvious type specimen book. The Officina typeface was designed to be economical and suitable for writing documents in 1990 when the paper was expensive. I wanted to show off the merits of officina through the Specimen book. So I decided to send the officina to Mars, where paper would be a very precious resource. In 2032, nasa post the job that they are hiring the first typeface for new human race in Mars, and the Officina write his resume showing his economical and readable merits. The book shows the form of the document from beginning to end and explains the merits of this typeface.

This was a work that put two unrelated books in one book. I chose the story of my favorite book, Hermann Hesse's "DEMIAN" and Oscar Wilde's Narcissus myth, as the lake's point of view. I have found commonality between the characters from those books who find themselves through the eyes of each other. I used that characteristic that we can not know ourselves without the reflection of each other as a design structure. This book is designed to require the right page to read the left page and the left page to read the right page.
