candide book layout
This book follows Candide and his slow and painful disillusionment as he witnesses and experiences great hardships in the world. For the book layout I focused on one of the most ridiculous parts of the text. The Portuguese authorities decide to burn a few people alive to prevent future earthquakes. They choose one man because he has married his godmother, and two others because they have refused to eat bacon thus revealing themselves to be Jewish. Despite this another earthquake occurs later the same day.
