Many books are difficult to read, but few are as difficult as the Codex Silenda. Why you ask? Because you have to be smart enough to unlock it, to read it.
Industrial designer Brady Whitney, invented the laser-cut, hand-crafted, five-page wooden book . “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 his 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.”
