In this book design project, I redesign lots of photograph and made some illustrations to show the world that Borges depicted. To convince the reader to believe the content of this book, [real documents] in the book is necessary. It is important to focus on the author and the relationship between representation, imagination, and the nature of reality itself because they appear real. All of these items seem to support the story you are about to read.
About the book
“Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius” is a short story by the 20th-century Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges. Told in a first-person narrative, the story focuses on the author’s discovery of the mysterious and possibly fictional country of Uqbar and its legend of Tlön, a mythical world. The reality of Tlon is idealist: material objects have no existence; language has no nouns; its principal discipline is psychology, since its inhabitants see the universe as nothing but a series of mental processes.
