Science Magazine illustration by Lance Miyamoto from 1981.

Every now and then, I come across an image that fascinates me. My love for books/libraries and science fiction portrayed in this single image makes me giddy. I saw this comic-bookish illustration for the first time today from a post by NPR Books which sent me to Smithsonian's article discussing the Library of Babel. I would really like to find out what article in Science Magazine references this illustration. I haven't truly started a search (I'm sure it won't be so difficult), but I was too excited not to share. I'll update my new findings later. Let me know if you make the discovery first!   

What to do when you haven't found more information? You color the image in photoshop! Keeping that 80s vibe with the color palette thank']s to Tim Leong's Super Graphic book cover pictured below.
