2.14 Photos/Cover art

Since some people wonder where all those pictures come from in all the 
releases, here's a brief synopsis: 

     SD insert - random pictures found by the graphic artist, not related to
        the band (same goes for Cherub Rock cover) 

     Today cover - D'Arcy's sisters 

     Pisces Iscariot cover (CD) - of continuous debate.  Some say it's James, 
        Courtney Love said it's her with a cherry in her mouth, Billy said
        it's his now-ex wife, Chris, although he may have been referring to
        the necklace picture on the inside liner 

     Bullet with Butterfly Wings insert - from an advertisement in the 1800s
	for some sort of youth potion called, "Brittle's Blood Bitters".

     Zero insert - a Giorgio Armani model (NOT Yelena Yemchuk, the
        photographer) 

     Thirty-Three - cover painting=Rasputin, insert=Lenin 

     Adore cover - fashion model Amy Wesson 

     Adore insert- the pictures on the inside of the CD liner were taken while 
        the band was on tour in Poland during the Mellon Collie tour, it is 
        assumed

     Perfect single covers - unknown (so far)
