Codex Roboticus


But Machine made itself masks and hid among Man

We can’t be sure that the delirious dream-diaries of the late Dr Schwenck – veterinary doctor, morphinist and first prophet of the age of the conscious machine – are simply fiction or real literary flotsam from another time. This book contains fragments and prophecies from Dr Schwenck’s estate of the late 1920’s as well as material from the 1940’s to 1960’s, based on the now forgotten revelations of the self-styled prophet. The edition comes with a correlating foreword by renowned historian Dr. Hans-Martin Nommsen and packs a fantastic artbook-style trip into the age of Golem, expressionist movies and arcane horrors of the dawning of man’s oldest dream.
