The foreword of this book proclaims that it is “a grammar of the mind and a phenomenology of love and a science of the arts as seen by a stalker of the wild mushroom”. The book is bound into stiffened embossed paper made to look like leather, with white stuck-on headbands and title and publisher information stamped in gilt on the front and spine. A yin-yang symbol is stamped in gilt on the back cover. All edges stained red.
