The Unpublished Illustrated Mind of William Burroughs. Before his death Burroughs collaborated with Artist Malcolm McNeill on an illustrated book that never made it to press. A garden of earthly delights. (NSFW)

Am I missing a link somewhere that lets me see the work at a size that is reasonable? This things are so tiny I can barely make out what's going on. What I can make out looks freakin fantastic though.

LISTEN TO MY LAST WORDS anywhere. Listen to my last words any world. Listen all you boards syndicates and governments of the earth. And you powers behind what filth consummated in what lavatory to take what is not yours. To sell the ground from unborn feet forever --

"Don't let them see us. Don't tell them what we are doing --"

Are these the words of the all-powerful boards and syndicates of the earth?

"For God's sake don't let that Coca-Cola thing out -- "

"Not the Cancer Deal with the Venusians -- "

"Not the Green Deal - Don't show them that -- "

"Not the Orgasm Death -- "

"Not the ovens -- "

Listen: I call you all. Show your cards all players. Pay it all pay it all pay it all back. Play it all pay it all play it all back. For all to see. In Times Square. In Piccadilly.

"Premature. Premature. Give us a little more time."

Time for what? More lies? Premature? Premature for who? I say to all these words are not premature. These words may be too late. Minutes to go. Minutes to foe goal --

"Top Secret - Classified - For the Board - The Elite - The Initiates -"

Are these the words of the all-powerful boards and syndicates of the earth? These are the words of liars cowards collaborators traitors. Liars who want time for more lies, Cowards who can not face your "dogs" your "gooks" your "errand boys" your "human animals" with the truth...

A bit short, but good nonetheless.
