codex silenda

Engineer and writer Brady Whitney, Colossal reports, has crafted a beautifully ornate binding that withholds readers from progressing to next page of the story within those covers until the reader can solve the mechanical logic puzzles and unlock what happens next. The story within is about an apprentice in the workshops of Leonardo da Vinci who is confronted with a similar conundrum and has to prise out its secret. This book reminds me of the great immersive fun I had in reading JJ Abrams’ and Doug Dorst’s S or the Ship of Theseus a couple of years ago.
