New revised edition with several additional drawings. Originally published by Franco Maria Ricci in 1981. Limited to 600 numbered copies: 300 for the Italian market, and 300 for the U.S. market. This copy (#47) is part of the Italian edition, which precedes the American edition. Includes the limited, signed Ta-Roc print (#122 of 150). Bright red decorated cloth, yellow endpapers, silk bookmark. The Decodex, a small booklet in a pocket affixed to the rear pastedown endpaper with text in Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian, contains a short introduction by Serafini in which he explains how the Codex came to be. Apparently, a cat was actively involved in the creative process. The book is a masterpiece of fantasy, painstakingly illustrating a non-existent world and written in a non-existent language which, at times, seems to be a surrealist parody of our own world. Serafini, an architect and graphic designer, wrote and illustrated the volumes during a two-year period in the late 1970s. In the beautiful red cloth clamshell box with gold decorations. A fine copy in fine clamshell box. Comes in the original publisher's cardboard box.; Folio
