CODEX SERAPHINIANUS is an encyclopedia of a made-up universe, written and illustrated by Luigi Serafini in the 1970s. It is an imaginary record of a strange world written in an invented language, divvied up into 11 chapters. The first section appears to describe the natural world, dealing with flora, fauna, and physics. The second deals with the humanities, the various aspects of human life: clothing, history, cuisine, architecture and so on.

I like the shark. And the costume. And the wallpaper. Other than that, I have no idea.
