Wednesday Paperback Cover

This is wandering off the reservation a bit, but the image above is from a Yugoslavian edition of Naked Lunch. It makes me wonder if anyone read the book because the image sure as hell wasn't inspired by anything Burroughs wrote. It appears to have come from a painting. If you recognize it, let me know. More Burroughs covers here.

I recognize that painting! It's called "Big Ass Booty (rear view)" by the Dutch painter Dens Himmselbooty.

Very famous in the mid 1800's. They sold a lot of these in Amsterdam.
