Codex Seraphinianus returning to print
 
The Codex Seraphinianus, often considered the world's weirdest book, is coming back into print.

From wikipedia:


Codex Seraphinianus, originally published in 1981, is an illustrated encyclopedia of an imaginary world, created by the Italian artist, architect and industrial designer Luigi Serafini during thirty months, from 1976 to 1978.[1] The book is approximately 360 pages long (depending on edition), and written in a strange, generally unintelligible alphabet.
Some sample pages:

It's on sale at Amazon, coming out at the end of the month. It's not super cheap, currently at $75, but it's so bizarre that I had to order it.

I've heard of this book, but have never had the opportunity to crack the spine. I'd be curious to page through it in person -- not sure I'd go back to it repeatedly though.

Also, I see there's a signed deluxe edition available for $400.

Never heard of it before now. I'm looking over the .pdf version. Mrs Danger will love it.

My book was lost in transit. Amazon is sending me a replacement, but it won't arrive for 1-3 months. Such bullshit.
