Codex Seraphinianus, 1976-1978
‘The Codex Seraphinianus is a book written and illustrated by Italian artist, architect and industrial designer Luigi Serafini, from 1976 to 1978. The book appears to be a visual encyclopedia of an unknown world, written in one of its languages, an alphabetic writing intended to be meaningless.’
you guys don’t understand how much i love this book i want to be buried with it in my hands
I try not to post text in here because my thoughts are probably depressing, but ill try it.
I wonder if ill ever be as happy as i was in college. Sometimes i think i was never happy until then, and havent really been since. Sure, there are moments of euphoria but it is of a different nature. I suppose it was a combination of the exhilarating beauty of santa cruz, and The Changes and The Firsts. It was probably the first time i really felt free, and that i was making decisions based on my own thoughts/ emotions. Now i work, i scramble, i play hard to forget it all the next day and i pay for it.
I shuddered earlier at myself for the darkness of my thoughts. SUMMER is coming. Will it help?
