Album Cover Description[edit]

A silhouette of a young Jandek, standing in his room. Curiously, this would be replicated somewhat at the Jandek show in Austin, TX in August 2005, when a light cast the Corwood Representative's shadow across the side of the theatre.

Another unique facet of this cover can no longer be found on the CD release. The original included the "Chinese menu" back cover, in which the titles were listed in what might be called a "Chinese Restaurant font." This was removed for the 2003 CD release.
