Seller Comments:

Book. Folio-over 12"-15" tall. This is a New and Unread copy of the Revised and Updated Edition (Originally published in 1981). Sealed in the original publisher's shrink wrap as issued and unopened. The CODEX is part of that rich family of feats and mirages, from the "Naturalis Historia" by Pliny, to the "De Rerum Natura" by Lucretius all the way to the "Encyclopedie" by Diderot and d'Alembert. Bound in cream decorated boards. No dust jacket issued. New illustrations and introduction in the updated edition. This is an extremely large and heavy book and may require additional postage depending on destination.

From the Publisher

An extraordinary and surreal art book, this edition has been redesigned by the author and includes new illustrations. Ever since the Codex Seraphinianus was first published in 1981, the book has been recognized as one of the strangest and most beautiful art books ever made. This visual encyclopedia of an unknown world written in an unknown language has fueled much debate over its meaning. Written for the information age and addressing the import of coding and decoding in genetics, literary criticism, and computer science, the Codex confused, fascinated, and enchanted a generation.

While its message may be unclear, its appeal is obvious: it is a most exquisite artifact. Blurring the distinction between art book and art object, this anniversary edition-redesigned by the author and featuring new illustrations-presents this unique work in a new, unparalleled light. With the advent of new media and forms of communication and continuous streams of information, the Codex is now more relevant and timely than ever. A special limited and numbered deluxe edition that includes a signed print is also available.

Hardcover. 8" x 13" USA and CANAD Orders ONLY [Overseas Buyers = Contact us if you are willling to pay the High Shipping Costs; Weight = 2350 Grams (over FIVE Pounds) *** Huge Heavy Coffee Table Fantasy Art Book; Approx 360 pages; Wikipedia = Codex Seraphinianus, originally published in 1981, is an illustrated encyclopedia of an Imaginary World, created by the Italian artist, architect, and industrial designer Luigi Serafini during 1976-1978. Written in a strange, generally unintelligible alphabet. Originally published in Italy, the book has since been released in several countries. The book is an encyclopedia in manuscript with copious hand-drawn, colored-pencil illustrations of bizarre and fantasticalflora, fauna, anatomies, fashions, and foods. The illustrations are often surreal parodies of things in the real world: bleeding fruit; a plant that grows into roughly the shape of a chair and is subsequently made into one; a lovemaking couple that metamorphoses into an alligator; etc. Others depict odd, apparently senseless machines, often with a delicate appearance, kept together by tiny filaments. There are also illustrations readily recognizable as maps or human faces. On the other hand, especially in the "physics" chapter, many images look almost completely abstract. Practically all figures are brightly coloured and rich in detail. The language of the book has defied complete analysis by linguists for decades. The number system used for numbering the pages, however, has been cracked, It is a variation of base 21. An Obscure & Beautiful Fantasy Masterpiece; Inventory.
