Notes:

A curious, disorienting cover. The designer, Barbara DeWilde, has rotated Atget's image of a corner at Rue de la Montage-Sainte-Genevieve 270 degrees, and combined it with an amusing and bizarre Andrew French photograph of a man dancing the tango simultaneously with two women. The resultant montage is exotic, erotic and narcotic.
