my head feels numb and like the inside is a caving hole of sand falling inward
and the feeling then flows into my chest and arms and I feel nothing all over I wish I could empty the sand out or dissolve into it
Written in a strange language by Italian architect, Luigi Serafini in 1981. This is one of the strangest encyclopedia ever written.It consists of hand-drawn, colored-pencil illustrations of bizarre and fantastical world. All of it drawn by Serafini himself. Some of the illustrations are considered to be beautiful while others are considered to be a bit more on the disturbing side.
The only thing known for sure about this book is that “Seraphinianus” is a variation of the author’s name. The alpahabet has about two-dozen characters which relate to nothing else humanity has ever seen.
