NICO is a song's name, which is sung by Japanese singer Lucy Advantage. This objective is created a lyric book. I choose this song because I felt special feeling after I have listened for first time. According to the lyric, it describes a single girl's daily life. When I heard this song, it sounds very quiet, slow and a little bit sad. As I was really inspired by Japanese design style, I thought white could be the best color to depict this feeling, and tried white on white to featured the sense of being quiet and alone. The sensation that I am trying to express with the book is basically simple, clean, and the calmness. People should feel relaxed, and look back at the simple things of life reading such a book and enjoy the music at the same time.
