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.
