Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
An extraordinary and surreal art book, this edition has been redesigned by the author and includes new illustrations. Ever since the "Codex Seraphinianus" was first published in 1981, the book has been recognized as one of the strangest and most beautiful art books ever made. This visual encyclopedia of an unknown world written in an unknown language has fueled 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, the "Codex" confused, fascinated, and enchanted a generation.
While its message may be unclear, its appeal is obvious: it is a most exquisite artifact. Blurring the distinction between art book and art object, this anniversary edition-redesigned by the author and featuring new illustrations-presents this unique work in a new, unparalleled light. With the advent of new media and forms of communication and continuous streams of information, the "Codex" is now more relevant and timely than ever. A special limited and numbered deluxe edition that includes a signed print is also available.

Book description

Ever since the Codex Seraphinianus was first published in 1981, the book has been recognized as one of the strangest and most beautiful art books ever made. This visual encyclopedia of an unknown world written in an unknown language has fueled much debate over its meaning. Written for the "information age" addressing the import of coding and decoding in genetics, literary criticism and computer science, the Codex confused, fascinated and enchanted a generation.

While its message may be unclear its appeal is obvious. It is a most exquisite artifact. Blurring the distinction between art book and art object, this 33rd anniversary edition--redesigned by the author and featuring new illustrations--presents this unique work in a new unparalleled light. With the advent of new media and forms of communication the Codex is now more relevant than ever. The continuous stream of information and how it is processed is very much a part of our lives and what makes this extraordinary book so timely and sought after by so many.
