About this title

Synopsis:

This collection of three stories and numerous poems of Jorge Luis Borges is complemented by extraordinary, original photographs that give this book great visual appeal. Stories include Library of Babel,” in which a man wanders though the labyrinthine universe; The Book of Sand,” where a man discovers a book that reveals a strange and shifting content; and Borges and I,” in which the protagonist reinvents himself through his writings. A collection that combines the most provocative writings of the great Argentinian author and the startling black-and-white photographs of the artist, this volume is a beautiful and profound evocation of the power of the book to inform and inspire.

About the Author:

Jorge Luis Borges was one of the 20th century’s greatest authors, who published numerous collections of poems, essays, and fiction. He received various literary awards over the course of his career, including the International Publishers’ Prize, which he shared with Samuel Beckett in 1961, and the Doctor of Letters from both Columbia and Oxford universities. Sean Kernan is an artist and photographer whose work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum, the Portland Museum of Art, and numerous galleries in New York, Santa Fe, and San Francisco.
