Codex Seraphinianus

Last weekend, at my nephew’s high school graduation, I looked on with growing puzzlement as a group of his friends paged through a book titled Codex Seraphinianus.

The script was alien and has of yet not been deciphered. The layout resembled a primer or mini-encyclopedia explaining basic concepts from an alternate reality.

The page numbers apparently use base 21 arithmetic.

If you are intrigued, there are several websites that discuss the book, Codex Seraphinianus.

Clicking on the images will make them larger.
