The Secret Miracle

the secret miracle

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.
