Lorem Ipsum has been deeply inspired by the works of D. F. Wallace and T. Pynchon, a postmodern route through a labyrinth assembled with “impossible” texts: the standard version of Lorem Ipsum (a sample text used in printing layout setup) Luigi Serafini’s Codex Seraphinianus and Ma fin est mon commencement by Guillaume de Machaut.


The fundamental weakness of these texts, whereas they don’t have (almost) any meaning, becomes the cornerstone of an unlikely library of Babel, a tower where nothing is what it seems, a haunted house from where to sense the surroundings and catch a few glimpses of our world
