"Not many living artists would be sufficiently brave or inspired to attempt reflecting in art what Borges constructs in words. But the detailed, evocative etchings by Erik Desmazieres provide a perfect counterpoint to the visionary prose. Like Borges, Desmazieres has created his own universe, his own definition of the meaning, topography and geography of the Library of Babel. Printed together, with the etchings reproduced in fine-line duotone, text and art unite to present an artist's book that belongs in the circle of Borges's sacrosanct Crimson Hexagon - "books smaller than natural books, books omnipotent, illustrated, and magical.""--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Der Turm von Babel ist das gewaltigste Bauwerk des Seidenen Zeitalters: er ragt so hoch in die Wolken hinein, dass niemand weiß, wo er endet; in seinem Inneren gibt es ganze Königreiche und unzählige Labyrinthe voller geheimnisvoller Kreaturen und tödlicher Gefahren. Eigentlich wollte der furchtsame Thomas Senlin nur einen kurzen Blick auf dieses Weltwunder werfen und dann weiterreisen. »Falls wir uns in der Menschenmenge verlieren, treffen wir uns auf der Spitze des Turmes wieder«, sagt seine frisch angetraute Frau Marya noch kokett zu ihm, kurz darauf ist sie tatsächlich spurlos verschwunden. Senlin bleibt keine Wahl: Er muss rein in den Turm und rauf auf die Spitze, wenn er seine Frau wiederfinden will. Das Abenteuer beginnt ...

Jorge Luis Borges in “The Library of Babel” imagines a hellish archive of books — a macrocosmic columbarium, whose infinite chambers provide an exhaustive repository for all the permutations of the alphabet. Inside this endless library, nonsensical texts so drastically outnumber any intelligible books that a coherent phrase must seem tantamount to a wondrous mishap. Poets within such a prisonhouse can no longer contribute anything innovative to literature, because literature itself has already anticipated and inventoried in advance all the anagrammatic combinations of every text. The librarian who narrates the story notes that, on a shelf in his hexagon, there exists a volume entitled THE PLASTER CRAMP.Christian Bök has rediscovered this volume in The Library of Babel (curated by Jonathan Basile). THE PLASTER CRAMP is published to the specifications described by Borges, who imagines a book of 410 pages, with 40 lines of text per page and with 80 characters of text per line. Bök has typeset the book in Panoptica (a font designed by Nick Shinn, who has created a set of monospaced characters, according to the “prisoner’s constraint,” meaning that none of the letters have either ascenders or descenders). The hardcover is limited to an edition of 100

Die unmögliche Stadt Es gibt sie wirklich, die Stadt am Ende der Zeit - zumindest behauptet das eine skurrile Kleinanzeige in einer Seattler Zeitung, die auch nur von skurrilen Menschen gelesen wird. Doch als drei dieser Leser auf die Anzeige antworten, beginnt eines der fantastischsten Abenteuer, das je erzählt wurde. Denn es gibt sie wirklich, die Stadt am Ende der Zeit. Eine Stadt, deren Technologie so weit fortgeschritten ist, dass man sie von Magie kaum mehr unterscheiden kann. Eine Stadt, in die sich die letzten Lebewesen eines sterbenden Universums geflüchtet haben. Eine Stadt, die nun Kontakt mit der Gegenwart aufnimmt – um zu retten, was wir als »Mensch« bezeichnen.

"The Library of Babel" is arguably Jorge Luis Borges' best known story--memorialized along with Borges on an Argentine postage stamp. Now, in The Unimaginable Mathematics of Borges' Library of Babel, William Goldbloom Bloch takes readers on a fascinating tour of the mathematical ideas hidden within one of the classic works of modern literature. Written in the vein of Douglas R. Hofstadter's Pulitzer Prize-winning G?del, Escher, Bach, this original and imaginative book sheds light on one of Borges' most complex, richly layered works. Bloch begins each chapter with a mathematical idea--combinatorics, topology, geometry, information theory--followed by examples and illustrations that put flesh on the theoretical bones. In this way, he provides many fascinating insights into Borges' Library. He explains, for instance, a straightforward way to calculate how many books are in the Library--an easily notated but literally unimaginable number--and also shows that, if each book were the size of a grain of sand, the entire universe could only hold a fraction of the books in the Library. Indeed, if each book were the size of a proton, our universe would still not be big enough to hold anywhere near all the books. Given Borges' well-known affection for mathematics, this exploration of
