      Lightbulb "Codex Seraphinianus" by Luigi Serafini

      There is an old thread on this even - from 2009 - but with only one picture - and - necroposting is frowned upon - isnīt it?

      I had to think of it, because of Sageousī wifeīs paintings - you can see some of these in here: http://www.dreamviews.com/artists-co...ml#post2060777
      Do check this thread out peeps!

      Okay - there:

      The book is approximately 360 pages long - done in about 30 months.

      It is an encyclopaedia in manuscript with copious hand-drawn coloured-pencil illustrations of bizarre and fantastical flora, fauna, anatomies, fashions, and foods.

      The illustrations are often surreal parodies of things in the real world: bleeding fruit; a plant that grows into roughly the shape of a chair and is subsequently made into one; a lovemaking couple that metamorphoses into an alligator; etc. Others depict odd, apparently senseless machines, often with a delicate appearance, kept together by tiny filaments. There are also illustrations readily recognizable as maps or human faces. On the other hand, especially in the "physics" chapter, many images look almost completely abstract. Practically all figures are brightly coloured and rich in detail.
      Some excerpts - I have the whole thing on my pc (soo hard to choose from..):

      Some stuff from "Animals":







      "Plants":





      Donīt know - maybe "Sports":



      "War"?




      "Architecture":



      Something from "Anatomy"



      I believe, this is something from "Physics"




      Itīs all done in this fantasy-writing - lot of "pure text" as well...
      Absolutely adorable, this guy!
