¶ An elaborate fantasy novel illustrated with Woodroffe's distinctive psychedelic style. "The Pentateuch Of The Cosmogony [literally meaning 'the 5 books of the origin of the universe'] is a fantasy 'creation myth-cycle' presented as a pseudo-scientific decipherment of an ancient document. Beginning with a description of how the document came to be found, it then details the ideographic 'language' employed before presenting a suggested interpretation which takes up the bulk of the work".
