Originally published in Italy, the book has since been released in several countries.
The Latin noun codex referred to a book with pages (as opposed to a scroll), and is often applied in modern usage to amanuscript with pages, especially an antiquarian one. Seraphinianus is a Latinisation of the author's surname, Serafini (which in Italian, refers to the seraphs). The title Codex Seraphinianus may thus be understood as "the book (or manuscript) of Serafini".
