Old Roach Cover Art

old cover

This creepy bugger ;-) graced the cover of a Straight Arrow edition of Cockroach and was also printed at the front of the Vintage edition. I know this because I happened upon an ad for Rolling Stone books [Rolling Stone is published by Straight Arrow Press, which Jann and Jane Wenner owned equally. I don't know if this is still the case, I think Jann suprised everyone when he was going out with male underwear models. Straight Arrow Books, an offshoot whose symbol was a boy scout, folded sometime in the early to mid- seventies.] I don't know who the artist is, but the signature on the roach's left shoulder looks like "L. Ansley". I assume he or she also did the cockroach drawings inside.
