Found this (http://boingboing.net/2011/11/06/codex-seraphinianus-semi-licit-copy-of-a-semi-legendary-book-of-the-weird.html) on Boing Boing...

Talk about a cool Mythos type handout!


Codex Seraphinianus is a much-sought-after (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0896594289/downandoutint-20), very weird book, now available as a free (slightly dodgy) scanned (low-rez) download via the Internet Archive: "The Codex Seraphinianus is a book written and illustrated by the Italian artist, architect and industrial designer Luigi Serafini during thirty months, from 1976 to 1978. The book is approximately 360 pages long (depending on edition), and appears to be a visual encyclopedia of an unknown world, written in one of its languages, a thus-far undeciphered alphabetic writing."

The original link is no longer working but the mediafire link in the comments is. I would very much like to own an original copy of this absolute weirdness...going to look around to see if I can find it. It'll definitely appear the next time I run CoC! Thanks for posting it!

Looked it over in more detail. That thing is absofumalutely whack. What sort of twisted mind comes up with this stuff. I feel like I need to take something to appreciate it fully. LOL at the 'crocodile with two backs'...
