Giant Book Maze is Author’s Unique Fingerprint

This recently completed installation, by Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo, gives the phrase “getting lost in a good book” a whole new meaning. A few weeks ago, we told you about a huge maze being made with 250,000 books. From today until August 26, aMAZEme is now being shown at the Southbank Centre in London. Inspired by the writer and educator Jorge Luis Borges, the maze forms the shape of Borges' unique fingerprint. As Borges once said, “I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.”
