The Shtick is an example of ergodic literature, where the design and layout of the manuscript requires a nontrivial effort from the reader to complete the text. It was written, designed and illustrated as part of the MA Communication Design master's project at Norwich University of the Arts. The groundbreaking work in graphic design in this manuscript earned a pass with distinction.
