Man’s Search for Meaning

The objective of this publication was to re-consider an influential text from a typographer’s perspective. I chose to use Viktor E. Frankl’s ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ for my solution.

The books intention is to give an insight to the mentality of two men directly involved in
the holocaust, Viktor E. Frankl, who spend 3 years as a camp prisoner, and Rudolf Höss,
the commandant of Auschwitz concentration camp.

In the original text, Frankl states that there are only two races of men, decent men and
indecent. My aim was to add the account of the indecent man.
