New edition of Codex Seraphinianus for weird art fans

Ever since the Codex Seraphinianus was originally published in 1981, this book has fascinated fans of the unusual. The crazy surreal artwork. The language that no-one can decode. Luigi Serafini is author of the world’s weirdest book in our humble opinion.

Italian artist Serafini still maintains an air of mystery when asked about the Codex book. For collectors, the editions from 1981 are now expensive items (some copies are priced at more than £4,000) so the publication of a new edition will mean another generation can discover this book without having to take a second mortgage.

Rizzoli has published a new standard edition and sellers are offering it for prices under £100, and there is also a deluxe signed edition.

There has been considerable interest in this new edition from the mainstream media.  Wired interviewed the author. Canada’s Globe and Mail unleashed details on its readers. Slate called it a beautiful mystery. Brain Pickings gave the book a big showing.
