hat trick design: phobophobia book of phobias


phobophobia designed by hat-trick design published by knock knock

 

hat-trick have designed the book phobophobia: a visual compendium of things that scare us.
the book is published by knock knock and illustrates 85 phobias and will be on sale from march 1st, 2013.

 

jim sutherland from hat-trick explains:

 

‘it’s a visual collection of the things we are scared of. we have illustrated each one
with the word itself. these ones are the fear of books, razors, beards, spiders, flies,
peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth, snakes and ladders, shadows and death.’

 

we also found a lovely quote for the inside cover:

 

‘fear has many eyes and can see underground’
- miguel de cervantes

 

 


bibliophobia – the fear of books

 

 


arachnophobia – the fear of spiders
pteronarcophobia – fear of flies
