The Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs


Naked Lunch @ 50! Anybody know who the calligrapher was who created the cover art ? Was it Brion Gysin?

None of the links I found mentioned who did the cover art, although there's lots of info on Burrough's relationship/influence by Gysin.

But thanks to tryin' to find that, now Ima read Re/search #4/5!
