The Library of Babel

Erik Demazieres - Library of Babel

Jorge Luis Borges wrote a wonderful story about the infinite library, a short story you can find here.

Thanks to the wonders of computing, something resembling that fantastic library now exists!

Read about it in The Guardian                                                                     Read about it at Open Culture
