Familiars

Blumfeld Fc Reup

Artist David Musgrave uses pencil drawings to rediscover and reinvent a little-known novella left unfinished by Kafka, concerning a man who comes home to find that two bouncing plastic balls have invaded his home.

This third book in our Familiars series is illustrated with a series of pencil drawings of curious artefacts and archaeological fragments invented by the artist.

The typeface used is Walbaum, Kafka’s preferred typeface.
