Codex Seraphinianus

at

Illustrations from the weird and wonderful ‘Codex Seraphinianus’, written in the 1970s by by Italian artist Luigi Serafini. To wit:

Codex Seraphinianus is strange, even for the most open-minded readers. Codex Seraphinianus is essentially an encyclopedia about an alien world that is clearly a reflection of our own, with each chapter dealing with key facets of this surreal place, including the flora, fauna, science, machines, games, and architecture. However, it’s difficult to be exact because no-one has been able to understand even the ‘Contents’ page.

        I suppose due to the fact its so old and the Seraphinianus appears to be a modern take on the idea of alien, indecipherable text along with bizarre illustrations I would find it more intriguing, as to whether its ‘better’, who knows?

        Both are quite odd though!
