Codex Silenda is a gorgeous and complex-looking wooden laser-cut five-page puzzle book created by industrial designer Brady Whitney. The book can only be read by unlocking the puzzle on each page, allowing the story to unfold. The book, which is "sold out" on Kickstarter, has a waiting list for anyone who wants one.

Codex Silenda is a five page book that features five intricate puzzles. Each page features a unique puzzle that requires the user/reader to unlock the corresponding bolts in order to progress to the next page.

As the puzzler moves through the book, a story begins to unfold, depicting the story of an apprentice in Da Vinci's Workshop who encounters the same Codex. However in the story the Codex acts as a trap set by Da Vinci to capture any would be spies/snoopy apprentices in order to protect his work. The only way to escape is to solve each of the puzzles before the master returns from his trip.
