Oh, Those Sirens

When I was digging around for Vonnegut images the other day I found this book cover of Sirens of Titan from his early, less-renown days. The artwork is less about the actual story and more about sexed up aliens and probey things. This is one of those instances where I love something for it's visual style and vintage '60's flavor, and hate it because Dell is manipulating the buyer at the expense of the author. Of course, if you as the author are trying to break out, I'm sure you'd favor anything that got the books off the shelves. But the same thing goes for some of Kerouac's early printings. I'll post more when I find them.
