Codex Silenda: The Book of Puzzles Looks Awesomely Frustrating

by Shane McGlaun

A very cool project has popped up on Kickstarter for a very unusual book. The book is made of laser-cut wood with puzzles that you have to solve to go to the next page.  The book is called Codex Silenda: The Book of Puzzles and the story focuses on an assistant in the workshop of Da Vinci who gets trapped in the book when snooping in the shop.

To escape, the apprentice had to solve the same puzzles you have to now solve. As each puzzle is solved, a page of the story is revealed. There are just five pages in the book, but each puzzle looks quite complex, and could take some time to figure out.

The big catch here is that the project has proven so popular that there are no more completed books available to purchase. You can get plans to cut out and build your own, or a version with all the parts and directions so you can build your own. A pledge of $125 or more will get you the unassembled book, with shipping starting this December. The project has already demolished its Kickstarter goal, so it’s definitely going into production.
