This 33-Year-Old Cryptic Book Has Left Linguists Baffled. Can You Decipher Its Language?

It gives the impression of an encyclopaedia and was first published in 1981. Serafini took 30 months to start and complete the Codex during 1976 and 1978. He calls it ‘automatic writing’ – a style he says children use to imagine what they see in books they cannot yet read.
