Codex Seraphinianus as a cbz.

June 17, 2008

Alot of the traffic that I get here is from folks googling the Codex Seraphinianus, about which I posted a little more than a year ago.  The post was to a flickr set that has since gone dark.  However, you can download the codex as a cbz via torrent here.  You’ll need ComicBookLover or Comical or some goddamn thing to read it.

I’ve been trying to figure out whose exhibit it was that I saw at the de Young Museum when I was eight (’75), turns out to be this guy. He had an alter-ego, Dr. Gladstone, who discovered a process by which bone turned to ceramic, and “unearthed or created” ceramic fossils from the pre-credulus era of the Bone Age that were on display. He also lectured on the process.
via (via), finally.


News to me II: The Borometz (aka the Scythian Lamb or the Vegetable Lamb of Tartary) exists, at least as an idea.
