The art of Michiko Hoshino


Library Recollection II (1993).

Artist Michiko Hoshino (born 1934) has produced a number of lithograph portfolios based on the work of Jorge Luis Borges. More inspirations than illustrations, which is no bad thing, with disembodied clock faces and—unsurprisingly—books among the melting textures.


Garden of Borges—Labyrinth (2001).

    As usual with this kind of work, it’s a shame we can’t see better reproductions.
