Some otherwordly illustrations taken from Luigi Serafini‘s masterpiece Codex Seraphinianus, a fantastical encyclopedia of the unknown completed between 1976-1978, and published in an extremely limited edition in 1981. This is a really incredible book! Too bad it's OOP.

In October Rizzoli will be republishing what is regarded by many to be the strangest book in the world, the Codex Seraphinianus. The Codex is unlike other historically well-known strange books (such as the Voynich Manuscript), in that the author of the book is not only known (Luigi Serafini is his name), he’s still alive.
