Codex Seraphinianus


Artist's book by Luigi Serafini. "What is the Codex Seraphinianus? Quite simply, it is a book about and for our age, the 'age of information,' a time of fascination with the coding and de-coding of messages, a time when the best minds in fields as disparate as genetics, computer science, and literary criticism are questioning our most fundamental notions of language, translation, and communication. The Codex presents the creative vision of this time: it is the work of a thoroughly modern imagination set loose to play with the idea of meaning." -- from interior flap.
