From the enchanting and intriguing mind behind Codex Seraphinianus comes this beautiful illustrated tribute to the famed Neapolitan character Pulcinella.
A concise encyclopedia on Pulcinella (also known as "Punch"), the famed Neapolitan stock character, conceived and designed by the author of the bestselling Codex Seraphinianus in a package similar in look, and feel to Codex Seraphinianus. This short monograph on Pulcinella is conceived as a extension of the Codex Seraphinianus, an encyclopedia filled with variations and fantasies on a theme. The book was published in 1984 and has recently been printed in an edition revised by the author.
Luigi Serafini was born in Rome in 1949. In 1977 he earned a degree in Architecture, and took part in exhibitions of work by Gruppo Memphis, headed by Ettore Sottsass. He has worked as an architect, ceramicist, glassmaker, opera director, set designer, critic. He has shown his work both in Italy and abroad and in several solo and group events. For Rizzoli he has already published Codex Seraphinianus (2013).
"This illustrated tribute to the famed Neapolitan character Pulcinella (or "Punch" as he is referred to in English) contains more than 100 extraordinary pencil illustrations, some of which are depicted in comic-strip style." --Publishers Weekly "It's a very different experience from "reading" the Codex and one where the physical medium of the paper book itself is put to essential use. Me, I love the thing and have been looking at it almost nonstop since they sent me the review copy" --DangerousMinds.net
