The Funambulist:

I just found out a version of Jorge Luis Borges’ Library of Babel illustrated by Erik Desmazieres. This very talented French printmaker created eleven etchings in relation with Borges’ incredible short story. However and despite the fact that the author is extremely precise in the way he describes the space of the library, Desmazieres chose to interpret the tale his own way, refusing a stubborn literal adaptation of the drawings to the words. The result is a very rich universe full of books and visitors who probably wandered several days in the library before finding the word combination they were looking for (or the one that hold their attention)…
