  1. Imagine that Stepan Chapman, M.C Escher, Albrecht Durer, and Salvador Dali were locked in an underground dungeon with an infinite amount of art supplies and only LSD to eat Suddenly, a wayward creator god shows up with a genetic splicer set to randomize the mixing of species and common objects, creating before the artists a set of real life models from which they might take inspiration Codex Seraphinianus is a natural history of the surreal, a book that truly defies categorization It is reminisc [...]

  3. This book is a dream come true literally Ever since I saw it once on world s weirdest books list, I have wanted to possess it however, the fact that it was very difficult to get hold of a copy and even if one was found, the price would very well drive it out of my reach forced me keep it on a very remote wishlist Until Liz provided me with a pdf copy Thanks, Liz It would be wrong to say that I have read Codex Seraphinianus I haven t In fact, nobody other than the author has It is written in a to [...]




  4. Remember that time when dad was in the military and he was stationed at Area 51 And he got transferred to that alien planet And we had to go to live there for like three years And we had to learn their language at the school And the writing was some kind of weird calligraphy And we got that science book with all those weird drawings in it Well now you can buy that book on.


  5. This book is the epitome of surreal This book is also one of the damn coolest things I ve had the honor of looking at I m so glad I own this It wasn t cheap to get so this book ain t going nowhere They charge over 500 for this book at Powell s So what s the plot of the book Ayyyyyeldkfifk I dunno Just imagine if you saw the Voynich manuscript and with a shot of LSD, created the brainchild of H.P Lovecraft, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, Frieda Kahlo, the Necronomicon itself, your most [...]


  6. Che cos il genio fantasia, intuizione, decisione e velocit d esecuzione Dopo la lettura del Codex, potremmo integrare la definizione di genio data dal grande Perozzi in questa maniera genio anche capacit di inventare qualcosa di nuovo partendo da un materiale strausato Parliamo del materiale libro in una delle sue varianti pi noiose l enciclopedia Gi , il Codex pi di un triplo salto mortale senza rete, pi di una scalata di un ottomila, pi di un salto dalle cascate del Niagara dentro ad una botte [...]



  7. Actually found a copy of this for a steal The little shop had no idea what it is worth and as I read through it I have to wonder why it is worth so much Albeit, it is a strange title and comforting in it s maddness It is kind of like being on peyote If James Joyce and M.C Escher had a child at Rod Serlings home under the direction of L Ron Hubbard Difficult to find a copy of this under five hundred dollars, so I feel very fortunate to have found it at a reasonable book price However, I will prob [...]


  8. This is an art book, oversized, with a fantastical premise To appear like an encyclopedia of the unknown world, the imaginarium, complete with invented language A work of immense ambition and kind of breath taking scope, it is sort of like if Jim Woodring and Charles Burns and 40 fantasy artists combined to create this volume of amazing and strange creatures only Serafini did it all, all by his lonesome Originally published in 1981, it was re released in 2013 And it s impressive And some of us [...]


  9. OH MY GOD I could trip on this book for an eternity It is the most exquisite, weirdest and amazing book I ve ever come across I could only get a PDF of this book, but going through it was like suddenly soaring up to a new level of awareness, of aesthetics, of pure beauty It is splendidly incoherent, but buried deep within its exquisite babble is an almost terrifying understanding, a glimpse into something that we are yet to attain, a disturbing, tantalizing truth half revealed What makes this bo [...]


  10. In his essay, Codex Seraphinianus, Hallucinatory Encyclopedia, Peter Schwenger specialist in liminal literature writes To name things and to classify them are ways of bringing them into focus, both visually and as objects of knowledge but the Codex brings into focus naming and classifications themselves, and implicitly reveals their systems of order to be hallucinatory Schwenger thus suggests that systematizing and classifying are themselves illusory i.e subjective endeavors The artful chaos of [...]


  11. My entire experience with this book involves flipping to a random page and thinking whoaweird I find this greatly rewarding, but others might not.

  13. Dreamscape compatible, human friendly Earth literature Mostly.Codex is a homegrown, hand drawn field guide to somewhere we can see from afar in the little corners of our eyes but never reach Rings of blood become ladybugs, every insect, mammal and metal are all born from flowers, and most importantly carrots can be siphoned out of potatoes Marvelous.Unlike its inter species ancestor, The Voynich Manuscript, which was clearly written by an alien for aliens, Codex tastes better with lentils and do [...]



  14. Impenetrable and nearly indescribable What a creation Like some lost Da Vinci notebook if old Leonardo had been fond of LSD , it is filled with imaginative and intricately detailed drawings of strange machines, inventions, buildings, mutations, and charts categorizing otherworldly flora and fauna all explained by lengthy paragraphs of an incomprehensible Voynich Manuscript esque code Is Serafini from another galaxy An alternate universe I almost believe so Regardless, this is certainly worth exa [...]



  15. Um exerc cio de imagina o do autor que provoca um exerc cio de imagina o no leitor em tentar entender, e estranhar, essa enciclop dia de um universo ficcional on rico, escrita em um alfabeto alien gena.


  16. E o carte pe care nu o cite ti propriu zis, pentru c nu po i s o faci M am sim it exact ca un copil care r sfoie te o carte i se mul ume te s priveasc ilustra iile, iar Textul i este inaccesibil, fiindc nu cunoa te alfabetul i poate deaceea cartea i se pare mult mai plin de n elesuri ne n elese, evident dec t este n realitate.



  17. Non temete il deforme Alla fine della lettura di questa opera unica per quanto sia discutibile si possa leggere il Codex , nell esplosione di immagini incredibili, geniali, inclassificabili che Serafini ha affollato nella pagina, il sentimento principale che mi rimane una serena meraviglia e una leggera e lucida ironia Mai , anche per le idee pi deforme o mostruose che si affastellano su queste splendide pagine emerge inquietudine, angoscia, disagio e come se Serafini volesse aprirci gli occhi s [...]


  18. CODEX SERAPHINIANUS is a bizarre but enormously inventive work by the Italian artist Luigi Serafini, first published in 1981 Over 300 pages handwritten in a completely unintelligible script which, like the Voynich Manuscript that probably inspired it, may not even be decipherable , the Codex seems to be an encyclopedia about the Earth of a parallel dimension, where human beings like us exist, but with entirely different cultures and surrounded by alien flora and fauna This is the graphic equival [...]


  19. A Not So Sacred Text For Those Who Believe In The Primacy Of ImaginationThis book really is as special as it was purported to be There are a great many art books out there, art monographs that collect the paintings and photographs of an artist or group of artists Some are even linked by a very specific theme, or setting, or models characters, to give the monograph a cohesive feel The Codex Seraphinianus, however, is something different Every page, every illustration, every alien glyph, was crea [...]


  20. Well, you know, not so much reading as reading It feels strange to mark this book as read when no language interface of any kind actually happened I guess it s still better than listing my coloring books Having looked through the whole thing, I m actually intrigued and baffled by it than before Apparently the language is asemic, so it s all about the pictures At least one image has its source in a text, but I have neither the knowledge nor the patience to track down the various antecedents that [...]


  21. an encyclopedia of a fabricated world grossly interesting than our own in a made up language gorgeous, with a penchant for quasi shroomy conceptual linkages two people having sex turns into a crocodile slithering off a bed fairly amazing, if you can get your hands on it i recommend inter library loan if you re a jerk, you can keep it and just pay the loss fee it s really out of print.
