This Puzzle Book Won’t Let You Flip The Page Until You Solve It
You thought Kafka was difficult to read? Well, prepare for the next level of difficult. We’re talking about the Codex Silenda – a book that won’t let you flip the page until you solve its puzzles.
“Each page features a unique puzzle that requires the user/reader to unlock the corresponding bolts in order to progress to the next page,” read’s the website. “As the puzzler moves through the book, a story begins to unfold, depicting the story of an apprentice in Da Vinci’s Workshop who encounters the same Codex. However, in the story, the Codex acts as a trap set by Da Vinci to capture any would be spies/snoopy apprentices in order to protect his work. The only way to escape is to solve each of the puzzles before the master returns from his trip.“
This hand-crafted puzzle adventure is a creation of industrial designer Brady Whitney, who’s pushing this laser-cut, five-page head spinner through a Kickstarter campaign as we speak.
