“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” This oft-misunderstood phrase, which forms the basis for Crowley’s practice of Magick, is found in The Book of the Law. Dictated to Crowley in Cairo between noon and 1 pm on three success days in April 1904, the Book of the Law is the source book and key for Crowley students and for the occult in general.

Since 2004 The Book of the Law has been available in this deluxe, hardcover edition, fittingly issued in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Liber AL vel Legis‘s transmission to Crowley.

This certainly one of the most impressive editions of The Book of the Law/ Liber Al vel Legis, ever published. The transcribed chapters of the Book of the Law have an elaborate illuminated border drawn on each page by artist Susan E. Jameson, around the text in full colour. Each page has a different illuminated border, with some striking art work, rich in symbolic content, and offering an initiated interpretation of the text. In addition to the illuminated text, there is a facsimile of Crowley’s original manuscript of Liber Al, in red ink, at the rear of the book. Unlike most editions of the Book of the Law, which are quite small, this has been published in a large format, with A4 sized pages, which makes it all the more impressive, with the stunning illuminated artwork, featuring on every single-sided page. This very rare edition of this important grimoire, would make a magnificent addition to any Thelemic or occult library. It is highly sought after, and becoming increasingly hard to find.
