Codex Silenda

Who doesn’t like a good puzzle? How about a good book? What about a puzzle that is also a book? That’s right, someone invented a book with locked pages, and you have to solve the puzzles to proceed to the next page.


The Codex Silenda follows the adventures of an apprentice of Leonardo de Vinci who attempts to pry into secrets he should have left alone. The book is about itself, as you must help the apprentice solve all the puzzles and put everything back to rights before his master returns.

Codex Silenda is designed and created by Brady Whitney, who launched a Kickstarter to cover the costs of purchasing a laser cutter. Unfortunately, all backer tiers closed when the campaign reached $200,000, but the puzzles are expected to be available for sale commercially once the Kickstarter pledges are filled. If you wanted a codex but didn’t get a chance to reserved a backer copy you can sign up on their waiting list to be informed when they’re available or visit their website for more information.
