This encyclopedia about life on an alien world is deemed the weirdest book ever published. It is written in an imaginary tongue and deals with key features of this peculiar fantasy world; flora and fauna, 'human' history, culture and traditions, ethnicity and race, science, architecture, medicine, games...

Codex Seraphinianus is indeed very, very psychedelic and unusual. Some of the illustrations are hilarious and others so creative and thought-provoking, I couldn't stop staring at them.

Bottom line - Yo Luigi, pass the joint!
