[Cover of the "Codex Seraphinianus"]

Description: Photograph of the cover of a book titled "Codex Seraphinianus" held by UNT Special Collections. It is made with a black cloth and the title, sub-title, and author is printed in gold paint, and there is also a cloverleaf border in gold. In the center is an illustration of a man riding a deer with large golden antlers that are touching a seemingly-organic spiked container. A stream of light is coming out of the deer's head and is hitting a mirror at the same time as a light is coming out of the rider's head. Attached to the mirror is a spiked contraption that seems organic that drops balls into a metal bowl when the mirror and a spike are interacted with. The rider is also wearing an interesting red suit that combines with the saddle on the deer.

[Illustrations in Codex Seraphinianus]

Description: Photographs of illustrations from a book titled "Codex Seraphinianus" held by UNT Special Collections.

There are books piled and arranged under the mattress to hold it up. There are more skeletons waiting their turn and some newly made humans looking at themselves in mirrors. There are hooks along the back with a hat and three human skins hung up. At the top is a secret code that the entire book is written in. Image 2 is a chart of creatures with lots of different shapes and features that look familiar but not quite real. At the top, under the drawings as labels, and as paragraphs beneath them all is a secret code that the entire book is written in. Image 3 is of a dual-sided rhinoceros; the larger side has a figure rising up where its horn should be and the figure is holding a pole with stings and hooks on it. The hooks are peeling back the skin and revealing a second smaller rhinoceros that is facing the other way.
