Codex Seraphinianus Startling Your Views Soon

Codex Seraphinianus

Just in time for Halloween the Codex Seraphinianus will be republished by Rizzoli. If you're into creepy manuscripts and a fan of books that should never be perceived by people on this plan of existence, Necronomicon readers now what I'm writing about, then get ready to perceive the insane art and undecipherable pages of the Codex Seraphinianus.

The Codes has been a long waited literary item that seems to be an Encyclopedia of a world very different and disturbing than ours. Pages of bizarre imagery of weird creatures,devices and places fill the book with a language they may not have a real syntax.

A cult-status following by the literary-set has made this book hard to find and expensive to buy. With the new edition a whole new generation of readers can place this book on their coffee tables and have their friends looks through and go, "What the Hell is this?" , or possibly deny ever seeing it as some of it is beyond startling.

If you wanted costume ideas or just the perception of some scary thoughts this book might be your salvation.

From the bits and pieces gather online I'd love to see an art show showcasing the book and the work of its creator Luigi Serafini.
