Australian/British Cover

This rather lovely Penguin cover (ca. 1974) comes from Britain, where the Angels have chapters as well. The attitude towards them is more tolerant, I think, than North America, which has a morbid fear of anything that is not clean-cut. Penguin Books, Picture Puffins and other "bird" books are widely available in the British Commonwealth. They usually have a bright orange spine, and easy to recognize.

The Hell's Angels have a European following as well. These Angels are said to be less violent, less involved in drugs and not given to chain whipping and stomping. Many thanks to Stanley, the Wizard of Oz.
