The Curious Codex

While our editor attended graduate school at School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), she got a chance to view an early edition of Codex Seraphinianus in their special collection archives. Italian artist, Luigi Serafini, has created an illustrated Encyclopedia for an imaginary world, complete with an imaginary language. We’re certain that the world has never seen anything quite like it.

The book serves as living proof that you–the artist, the writer, the creator–can assemble an appendix of things, things that do not have to correspond directly to what you see around you. Feel free to explore the uncharted territory of your mind!

Make sure to submit to our Spring Edition of Fiant Verbas!
