New revised edition with several additional drawings. Originally published by Franco Maria Ricci in 1981. Limited to 600 numbered copies: 300 for the Italian market, and 300 for the U.S. market. This copy (#29) is part of the Italian edition, which precedes the American edition. Includes the limited, signed Ta-Roc print (#105 of 150). Bright red decorated cloth, yellow endpapers, silk bookmark. The Decodex, a small booklet in a pocket affixed to the rear pastedown endpaper with text in Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian, contains a short introduction by Serafini in which he explains how the Codex came to be. Apparently, a cat was actively involved in the creative process. The book is a masterpiece of fantasy, painstakingly illustrating a non-existent world and written in a non-existent language which, at times, seems to be a surrealist parody of our own world. Serafini, an architect and graphic designer, wrote and illustrated the volumes during a two-year period in the late 1970s. In the beautiful red cloth clamshell box with gold decorations. A fine copy in fine clamshell box. This copy comes in the original publisher's cardboard box. ; Folio; Signed by Author. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: An extraordinary and surreal art book, this edition has been redesigned by the author and includes new illustrations. Deluxe numbered, limited edition of 600 w/signed card. 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.

About the Author: Luigi Serafini is an architect, ceramist, glazier, painter, sculptor, designer, opera director, set designer, and critic who works in Italy and abroad. In 2007, the Padiglione d'Arte Contemporanea in Milan dedicated a successful mostra ontological (ontological exhibition) to him. He has illustrated works by Franz Kafka and Michael Ende.
