Codex Seraphinianus

Posted: 8th November 2011 by affehaus in book

apparently a notable book of enigmatic content… yet, one notoriously difficult to obtain.
Now available at an interwebs near you. For free.

“The Codex Seraphinianus is a book written and illustrated by the Italian artist, architect and industrial designer Luigi Serafini during thirty months, from 1976 to 1978. The book is approximately 360 pages long (depending on edition), and appears to be a visual encyclopedia of an unknown world, written in one of its languages, an alphabetic writing intended to be meaningless.”

Having done minimal research (I find that I jump to better conclusions, not being weighed down by facts), my understanding is: one of the myriad issues (not the one pictured, I’m sure…) has been scanned, and is available for download.

By anyone.  For free.
