Featuring a handsome new package redesigned by the author himself, this edition is a must-have for fans and collectors of Luigi Serafini s art. First published in 1981 in Milan by F.M. Ricci, the book has been hailed as one of the most unusual yet beautiful art books ever made. A visual encyclopaedia of an unknown world written in an unknown language, it has fuelled 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, it has now fascinated and enchanted two generations. While its message may be unclear, its appeal is obvious: it is a most exquisite artifact, blurring the line between art book and art object. This edition presents it in a new, unparalleled light complete with 15 new illustrations by the author. With the advent of new forms of communication, continuous streams of information, and social media, the Codex is more relevant and timely than ever. A limited numbered deluxe edition, bound in real cloth and presented in a handsome slipcase, is also available. It includes a signed print of a new illustration made by the author to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the death in 1321 of Dante Alighieri, one of Italy s greatest writers and creator of The Divine Comedy.

  1. Livslång njutning
    Leonard Stenström, 12 februari 2022

    Denna bok är kul, intressant, ett bra samtalsämne och fin inredning. Värd priset på alla sätt och vis, detta är en bok som kommer öka i värde med tiden.

  2. Dyr men fin
    Stefan, 12 januari 2022

    En rejäl tegelsten, större än jag trodde faktiskt. Den får knappt plats i någon bokhylla, men det gör inget för det här är en bok som man vill låta ligga framme helst hela tiden. Den kostar en slant, men med tanke på att varenda sida är ett konstverk i sig så känns det värt pengarna. Imponerande papperskvalitet dessutom.

    This delightful homage to Pulcinella (or Punch as he is referred to in English) contains over one hundred extraordinary pencil illustrations, some of which are depicted in comic-strip style. Divided into several scenes, it features the oddly surre...

Recensioner i media

"Codex Seraphinianus is the perfect book to drive a reader mad with delight and frustration. Created by Italian artist Luigi Serafini, it's a vast compendium of surreal illustrations annotated in a made-up language. The infinitely bizarre diagrams - a horse with a caterpillar rear end, umbrellas walking on human legs, a machine extruding people - make "Codex" impossible to put down or comprehend. It feels like a biology textbook designed by Salvador Dali on acid. The giant new 40th anniversary edition from Rizzoli includes 15 fresh drawings. To see it once is to be enchanted forever." -WASHINGTON POST "This mysterious and untranslated book of wonder is phenomenal even if your state has not legalized marijuana. If your state has legalized psilocybin you might want two copies." -BOINGBOING.NET
