I'm sure many of you have possibly seen images taken from this book, here are a few of my favorite examples:





So basically, this is a massive book of odd, obscure illustrations accompanied by a coded writing that I have been told was simply gibberish. Essentially the book is just odd illustrations accompanied by indecipherable text (in case someone wants to fact check me and make sure.)

The book covers a number of different subjects and is purely up to interpretation, and from what I've gathered it covers things such as physics, emotion, health, death, animals, ecology, etc.

I don't personally own a copy, as they typically run over $100. I've had the joy of reading my friend's copy a few times. It's such a dense book, definitely check it out if you get the chance!

I've got 2 copies (One is beat up and missing it's cover and a few pages) and my mum has a third. It isn't gibberish, it just hasn't been decrypted yet it's still a favorite among cryptologists, who to this day are trying to decipher it but have so far only managed to crack a few small elements of the book, such as the numeric system used for numbering pages. What we do know for sure is that the text and the book in general was intended to give adults the same experience as a child does when looking at a book, which is the reason why the text is encrypted and everything seems so alien.

The reining theory on why it can't be translated is because of the classic method of ensuring near impossible translation, not providing enough text to cross reference for any patterns which would allow us to do so. For instance the reason the numeric system was cracked is because the pattern could be found, which wouldn't have happened if we weren't given enough of the page numbers in order for us to find the pattern the numbers follow.

Interesting, I was merely going off a friends description, but haven't actually read up on the attempts to decipher it. I can definitely see the existence of a number system though.

Lmao this Luigi Serafini guy is something else huh
