John A H Comments: The future belongs to the designer egg timer people.

“Hello, I am Eva.” “And I am Adele.” (Obscure Eurotrash reference).
Travel to the future year 1982, when Art Deco-Droids rule the Earth!
“The rotating restaurant waitress has no nose.”
“How does she smell?”
I have to admit I really do love the Penguin covers. I would take this on a bus with pride!
ANd I’m going to try and make me a set of those sunglasses!
After seeing this cover, I am definitely considering OTHER ways.
What does she look like without the airbrushing?
Wasn’t this a Grace Jones video?
Much as I like her egg-timer noggin, it’s her volume-control peepers that make this cover. I bet they go up to 11.
Wow, Rosy from the Jetsons has really lost a lot of weight!
She also has a touch of the Prof Farnsworth about her.
I rather like this one, actually. It was painted with skill with references to Art Deco and ’50s diner décor, and a nod to ’30s-era houses of the future. It’s got an early-80s Devo vibe, and really is not all that bad looking.
Even if the woman has no nose.
I like the star field background. It looks so tranquil–
Wait. Why is the rotating restaurant farting out of both ends?
Anyone else notice her head above the shades is a different color than below the shades? Her nose matches the top, maybe it’s one of those Groucho nose & glasses (and skull cap) things….
It’s also wider than her face on the left. It’s clearly some sort of hat.
Half robot. Half baseball. All woman!
