The Secret Miracle

swanson_secret_micacle22.6

My objective for this project was to create an expressive and experimental typographic exploration of Jorge Borges’ 1943 short story “The Secret Miracle.” My process was divided into three stages. First, I researched the story’s historical context of Prague during the Nazi occupation. Next, I used analog and digital processes to create images, textures, and faux-historical artifacts, such as an arrest warrant, mid-century book cover designs, and era-specific street signage, to integrate as supporting material for the story. Finally, I created a contemporary typographic interpretation of Borges’ story.
