in the late 70s italian architect, illustrator and industrial designer luigi serafini made a book, an encyclopedia of unknown, parallel world. it’s about 360-380 pages. it is written in an unknown language, using an unknown alphabet. it took him 30 month to complete that masterpiece that many might call “the strangest book on earth”. codex seraphinianus is divided to 11 chapters and two parts - first one is about nature and the second one is about people.
btw five hundred years ago there was another book somewhat like that - voynich manuscript. (via the_dimka: codex seraphinianus)
Lee Price does gorgeous oil paintings of women eating in beds and bathtubs. Many of them are self-portraits. Aside from being clever and decadent and overall beautiful work, I think the paintings also speak about women and body image and how many women tend to have a complicated relationship with food. Enjoy viewing!
I found this artist thanks to my friend Karen (check out Karen’s blog for more sensual visuals!).
