Women, Snakes and Stalkers: South Asian book covers

This is a dual post with Will, from the great A Journey Around My Skull. All of these magnificent covers come courtesy of Quinn Dombrowski's impressive South Asian books project, in which she photographs book covers from the "PK" section (Indo-Iranian languages and literatures) of the University of Chicago's Regenstein library. See more covers at her blog, Women, Snakes and Stalkers, and at her flickr. And be sure to view Will's picks here.

Thank you to @weetstraw, @Coudal, @posteroffensive who first linked me to Women, Snakes and Stalkers.
