The Pentateuch of the Cosmonogonn-Dragon's World-Woodroffe/Greenslade. Dave Greenslade - EMC 3321

£150.00

Product description

1979 UK Dragon's World/EMI label 48-page lavishly illustrated hardback book and 22-track double vinyl LP - a project combining writer and illustrator Patrick Woodroffes science fiction story and ex-Colosseum keyboardist Dave Greenslades epic progressive rockscapes.
'The story and artwork within 'Pentateuch' concerns the discovery of an abandoned spacecraft in orbit around Jupiter, and the project to decipher the ideograms in the pentateuch 'document' discovered within. Most of the book is a retelling of the document, in much the same way as a modern translator might retell the contents of a Babylonian tablet or Egyptian papyrus scroll. Particularly remarkable is the combinatorial ideographic script created by Woodroffe and used throughout the artwork.'*

Vinyls has custom picture labels and are held in polylined black inner sleeves - ultimately mounted in pockets on the inside of front and back hardcover book.The records are in absolute mint condition and look like they have never been played.The book is also in mint condition apart from very slight ware on very bottom of outer sleeve.
