There are 4 Ta-Roc prints, each limited to 150 copies and distributed randomly throughout the edition. You’d need to be pretty committed to get all four.

A spread from the new preface. It’s interesting to see Serafini’s continued evolution, as he incorporates forms first seen in Storie Naturali (published in 2009).

The “Decodex” – this is substantially different from the version published by Rizzoli in 2006. Whereas that was a collection of essays and ephemera related to the Codex, this is an essay by Serafini, translated into multiple languages.
