Confronting and Collecting the Works of Luigi Serafini is an essay on the artwork of Luigi Serafini, author of the Codex Seraphinianus. The essay touches on all of Serafini’s major book works, including the publishing history of the Codex, although at it’s base, it is about how a chance encounter with a rare book can snowball into a veritable obsession with the gifted mind of an author or artist. This book will interest anyone familiar with Serafini and his work, as well as those who appreciate the hobby of book collecting in general.

This is the expanded second edition, which includes some revisions as well as additional material only available in the first deluxe edition of 10 copies, published in 2008.

The trade edition is limited to 50 copies, hand sewn in screenprinted linen cardstock wrappers with printed vellum endpapers.

The signed trade edition is limited to 25 copies signed by the author (of the essay, not Serafini himself) and includes a tissue dustwrapper.
