Seraphinianus Codex? illustrator and industrial designer Luigi Serafini

in the late 70s, italian architect, illustrator and industrial designer Luigi Serafini made a book, an encyclopedia of unknown parallel world.
The book is about 380 pages. and it written in an unknown language, using an unknown alphabet.
It took Luigi 30 month to complete that masterpiece that many might call “the strangest book on earth”.
 Codex seraphinianus is divided to 11 chapters and two parts – first one is about nature and the second one is about people.
Five hundred years ago there was another book somewhat like that – voynich manuscript.
