This particular project recomposes the modern-contemporary Seoul, the capital of Korea, through the eyes of literary works of the era into an infographic newspaper. The newspaper delineates each pieces of Seoul by connecting the particular area with excerpts from various modern-contemporary literary work that takes place in that area. Such structure allows its readers to feel the history and cultural vestige of literature that is assimilated within the city.

Each region in the information newspaper contains excerpts from a literary work where the region appears. The front side of the newspaper- formatted portion is dedicated to the text itself whereas the back side contains only the images of Seoul related to the text so that the readers can focus on the literature and its image respectively.
