And the Ass Saw the Angel

I've counted at least 6 different covers for this book; this one (2001, Penguin UK) is definitely the best. Very Banksy-riffic.

This is actually my least favourite cover for this book. It's too much Nick Cave (graffitti = rock music!) and less on the southern gothic aspects of the novel. It really is just that - a southern gothic.

What a silly name for a book.

The artwork looks laboured but still I like it. Werid that.
