The Book Design for 'Diary of Bonia Shur \ 1941-1945' was inspired by info-graphics such as maps, diagrams and calendars. The layout and typography of the ca. 270 small sized pages emphasize the diary-like character of Bonia Shur's autobiographic literature, accompanied by about 50 illustrations and photographs. The book was published as kindle e-book and in a small edition of paperbacks.
