Spicy Stories 1932

This is a real oddball for Bolles and for a time I wondered whether somebody else painted it. I also found the photo he used and this painting follows closely to it. You have to wonder why Bolles went to all the trouble to so carefully outlining all those tiles, but he had some mathematical ideas about composition and painting so who knows. I'll post some other atypical covers soon.
