The interior features another use of the narrow glyphs with a wide question mark.
Thanks for the addition, Iván! Yes, it looks like the question mark as well as other punctuation, currency symbols, and numerals were available in a single width only, see the glyph set posted by Matthijs in the other Use of Camellia.
The left half of the gatefold artwork shows a blonde woman covered in green foam, emerging from a bath barrel, smiling, with a phone in her hand. The right half depicts a distressed mother and her children. The text above is a quote from Henry Miller’s The Time of the Assassins: “How much longer can we postpone the inevitable?” (in French: Combien de temps encore pourrons-nous ajourner l’inévitable?) This collage is a critical commentary on the Vietnam War.
