Critical Analysis

by S. Muradi

Design Features

typographic: The text appears neatly throughout in a size that is large and easy to read. The chapters, which are introduced by appropriately labeled titles, are short and begin with an oversized yellow letter at the start of the text.

imagery: Nearly each chapter contains an image that corresponds with the narrative. These pen and ink prints are featured in dark red ink.

development: As the "little gray man" travels around, watchful of the clocks in his surroundings, the narrative describes his experience through time and space.
