Cover, Back Text

"A PERFECT 36-C. This is the story of Elise Lindsey, beautiful, sensuous small town schoolteacher, who becomes a brassiere model in New York's garment district. Men could not resist "handling the merchandise," but Elise was only interested in pursuing the lavender love of Lesbos as she made the 'gay scene' in Greenwich Village." -Back cover

Cover Art Description

The image of two women take up most of the cover's space. One, a blonde with short, curly hair, is seen from her torso upwards, naked, standing to the bottom left in the foreground. Her body is turned at a three-quarter angle to the left of the reader, and her head and gaze are turned to the right. The fingers of both her hands are interlaced in front of her chest, the forearms covering her bare breasts. She is wearing two bracelets on her left wrist, and a pearl earring can be seen on her right earlobe. Behind her in the background, to the bottom right of the reader, stands a brunette with long hair whose back is turned at a three-quarter angle to the right of the reader. She is wearing a black girdle, stockings with garters and suspenders, and a strapless, black brassiere which she seems to be removing, both hands on her back. Her head is bowed and turned slightly to her left. The scene is lit with diffused light from the front left.
