The rise and fall of an empire as told through the story by Jorge Luis Borges, Museum, On Exactitude in Science.

I retold the story by Jorge Luis Borges, Museum, On Exactitude in Science, by enabling its text as the basis for developing a visual metaphor and an analogy. The story recounts the rise and fall of an empire, I chose to represent this as the rise and fall of lung cancer in a survivor, told through a medical book. Each section of the story related to a chapter in the book, describing one stage of the cancer. Original illustrations were made to compliment the text by the author and extracted texts from existing medical books.


The metaphor serves as the headings for each page and chapter


Each chapter is distignuished by colour and a page seperator. This marks each section of the story by Jorge Luis Borges.
