It took him nearly three years to complete the project, and three more to publish it, but when it was finally released, the book — a weird and wonderful masterpiece of art and philosophical provocation on the precipice of the information age — attracted a growing following that continued to gather momentum even as the original edition went out of print. Now, for the first time in more than thirty years, Codex Seraphinianus public library is resurrected in a lavish new edition by Rizzoli — who have a penchant for excavating forgotten gems — featuring a new chapter by Serafini, now in his 60s, and a gorgeous signed print with each deluxe tome.

Another world is not possible, but a fantasy one maybe is. At the end of the day, the Codex is similar to the Rorschach inkblot test. You see what you want to see. It takes me hundreds of hours a month to research and compose, and thousands of dollars to sustain.
