The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories...

By Tim Burton

I don't actually consider this one odd, just Burton's style, kinda suiting :D And yes, I would like to know what it is about/purchase it 😋

Btw I forgot to speak about this one and it can fit the description of "different". I try to buy one for years but the price is often too expensive for a book we can't read 😛

The Codex Seraphinianus is an illustrated encyclopedia of an imaginary world (created in 1976-1978 and published in 1981).

One of the particularity is that it's written in a cipher alphabet in a constructed language. Another one is that it's hand-drawn, colored-pencil illustrations of bizarre and fantastical flora, fauna, anatomies, fashions, and foods. The language of the book has defied complete analysis by linguists for decades.

WOW, this looks like something that would hold my attention for more than an hour :D (my attention span has decreased severely in the last few months)
