Codex Seraphinianus

Codex Seraphinianus - Luigi Serafini Italian artist/architect Luigi Serafini barricaded himself inside his scriptorium for three years during which time he poured forth all manner of weird, imagined images and an invented text. The result is the Codex, a book that many have called the weirdest book in the world, a surrealist field guide to Serafini's unearthly world whose images are capable of drawing you in and holding you for hours. Rizzoli published this new edition in October. More here.
