Selecting one of my favorite novels, 'Die Verwandlung' written by Franz Kafka I created the below illustration for a book cover design competition. Because the Japanese title of the book is 'Henshin'' (=Die Verwandlung, or Metamorphosis), I designed the cover to spell the word 'metamorphosis' in Japanese using insects that themselves change.
