This is a catalog of the exhibition '2022 POSTHUMAN: Storytelling For Earthly Survival' held in October last year. With the theme of 'Anthropocene', it contains works and criticism through various interpretations of various artists. As it is an exhibition and a book dealing with heavy topics, I wanted to intuitively make the book 'look heavy' enough. So, I imagined a situation where the descendants of mankind would have found this book somewhere 1000 years later (for example, as an exaggerated + dystopian imagination, I also recalled the landscape of the movie Predator). The book labeled 'Guide' is certainly not fancy. It would rather be more like an object than a book. Based on this somewhat subjective and metaphorical imagination, I made a book like 'Black Mass'. The title printed in black foil on black paper is not easy to read. The sunken shape under it adds to the heavy impression of the book. Meanwhile, the visual identity used in all exhibition designs, including posters, was also maintained. Turquoise, which was the main color of the exhibition, was used as the front page, and a 'bar' made by disassembling the typeface was used for each artist's page and for the criticism page at the end of the book.
