Luigi Serafini (Italian, b. 1949)

Imaginary Flora from Codex Seraphinianus, 1976-78

"One summer afternoon in 1978, a voluminous parcel arrived in the offices of the publisher in Milan… When we opened it we saw that it contained a large collection of illustrated pages depicting a number of strange objects… The accompanying letter explained that the author, Luigi Serafini, had created an encyclopedia of an imaginary world along the lines of a medieval scientific compendium: in a nonsensical alphabet which Serafini had also invented during two long years in a small apartment in Rome."
