This is a luxury collection of musical pieces by the Hungarian composer Béla Bartók in six volumes and a 3D‑printed case. Each cover was assigned a geometric figure built up in a point‑grid system referring to the structure of the cosmos. The grid points were then animated to the rhythm of the given piece, gradually forming the typography of its title in a spatial form on the white cover. The final project is a freeze‑frame shot of the animation. The designer’s goal was to invent a new edition of the publication, directly related to the nature of the musical compositions, which could also be a new visual experience for piano students.
