After yesterday's post with my thoughts about The Codex Seraphinianus, I'm following up with a post of links I've collected regarding The Codex. And, of course, more pictures!
(A warning, though: I don't know about you, but I sometimes wish I didn't know very much about the book's origins and author. It's more mysterious that way, and that's its own fun.)
- An article from The Believer: How Mysterious is a Mysterious Text if the Author is Still Alive (And Emailing)?
- Serafini's Codex: An Alien Encyclopedia More info, images, and author information.
- Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius, Orqwith, and the Codex Seraphinianus Discusses the Borges story in relation to the Codex, as well as similar ideas in comic books and other media. Some great quotations about the Codex and good links.
- Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius The Borges story in full.
- This page is pretty strange. There's no html. It's a description of attempts to decipher several famous ciphers, including the Codex.
- Codex Seraphinianus - Links Another Codex link round-up. The rest of the site has some small images from the book, and short descriptions of the different sections.
- The "Codex Seraphinianus" flickr tag. An okay place to find more images of the book, if you want.
- Another post with a blogger's thoughts about the Codex, and some links.
