This work is an illustration of the 1975 short story about a mysterious and monstrous book, written by Jorge Luis Borges. The complete work consists of the book made from plexiglass, and ten printed pages on paper. The plexiglass “pages” are the matrices for each printed page, and their durability allows the owner of the book to make endless prints of the pages. The transparent quality emphasizes the book’s confusing nature. The infinite possibilities and lack of binding support the original narrative that “neither the book nor the sand has any beginning or end.”
