Counter culture comic godfather Robert Crumb did a stunningly accurate, word for word art book of Genesis.

It’s great to see it all laid out. It truly shows how bat shit crazy just that book alone is.

It reminds me of "The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb" (https://www.amazon.com/Book-Genesis-Illustrated-R-Crumb/dp/0...), which I enjoyed.

He, as an atheist, tries to present it in the raw form, without "explaining the hidden message" or any religious interpretation (neither Jewish nor Christian).
