All three pages are drawn and written in purple felt tipped pen. Bailey has also signed his own portrait on page 232 of the book, again in purple ink. Two of the subjects have also inscribed their photos, The Earl of Snowden; 'Love Tony', and Penelope Tree, Bailey's one time Muse and model, with two small drawings; A picture of a heart with an arrow through; 'Sin-cere-ly Yveres. Penelopache de trompatore el groupie (mais frustratario)'; a picture of an explosion, '(reelee) + Luv'. There are two small stains on the photo os Tree, otherwise a very good copy in publishers grey boards with silver lettering to the front panel and spine. The boards are a bit bumped but generally very good. In the original dustwrapper, which has a design by Alan Aldridge to the panels. There is a crease down the middle of both panels but overall this is a very good wrapper.
