“A man purposes himself the task of drawing the world. Among the years, he populates a space with images of provinces, reigns, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, heavenly bodies, horses and people. A while before he died, he discovers that patient labyrinth of lines traces the image of his own face.”
J. L. Borges.
SL Borges is a homage to the genial Jorge Luis Borges, illustrious Argentinean writer who lived between 1899 and 1986.
Sharply depicted by Augusto Costhanzo, SL Borges synthesizes to icons the big themes that obsessed him: the infinite, labyrinths, libraries, identity. But it although traces lines over the more human side of the writer, who loved cats, fervent politics and the taste of Tango.
SL Borges abridges a sum of original iconographic illustrations in True Type format, which masterly synthesizes the most important themes of the grand genius of the literature.
SL Borges takes part of the “Icons of Icons” Gallery, developed by SinergiaLab for Sudtipos
