A Collection of Burroughs' Book Covers

[All from here.]





Ask yourself these questions and take the necessary steps to find the answers: 'what is sex? What is word? What is color?' -- Color is trapped in word -- Image is trapped in word -- Do you need words? -- Try some other method of communication, like color flashes -- a Morse code of color flashes -- or odor or music or tactile sensations -- Anything can represent words and letters and association blocks -- Go on try it and see what happens -- science pure science --
// William S. Burroughs, The Ticket That Exploded
