The Codex Seraphinianus

‘The Codex Seraphinianus is a book written and illustrated by Italian artist, architect and industrial designer Luigi Serafini, from 1976 to 1978. The book appears to be a visual encyclopedia of an unknown world, written in one of its languages, an alphabetic writing intended to be meaningless.’

Go HERE to see more pages from this bizarre work of art.

I love that kind of stuff. All those mysterious codexes (sp) and manuscripts are enticing.

I always imagine how I would have responded if I got handed one of these as a kid. I would still be in the mental house trying to decipher it all.
