Codex Seraphinianus

'In the late 70s italian architect, illustrator and industrial designer Luigi Serafini made a book, an encyclopedia of unknown, parallel world. It’s about 360-380 pages. It is written in an unknown language, using an unknown alphabet. It took him 30 months to complete the masterpiece that many might call “the strangest book on earth”. Codex Seraphinianus is divided into 11 chapters and two parts - first one is about nature and the second one about people.
By the way, 500 years ago there was another book somewhat like that - ‘Voynich Manuscript.’ (The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown writing system - from wikipedia)
