I like that his eyebrows are brick ledges, thus permitting a bird to perch thereupon. Logical, but strange.
Perhaps all prisons could be constructed along the same lines. The convicts inside would think they were just looking out of a window, but we passersby would know they were trapped inside a giant brick head.
This cover could also serve for two Harlan Ellison books: I HAVE NO MOUTH (BECAUSE THE BRICKLAYER OMITTED TO GIVE ME ONE) AND I MUST SCREAM; and DEATHBIRD STORIES.
Looking closely above the face, it appears as if not just the hair but the skull itself is made of birds.(birdhair,birdskull…birdbrain?) I can’t imagine how this relates to a story about one-night stand sexual encounters in America.
