I know Mark has mentioned Dion before, but this 70's cover to the 1930 book seems more relevant now than ever. Oh and the Black Lodge.

This is the same book Bowie was reportedly obsessed with during his Thin White Duke era. I wonder if he figured Twin Peaks drew from it when he was cast in FWWM?

I imagine Mark loaned DKL a copy during the original run, and DKL's only takeaway was, "What a beautiful cover!"
