In case you want to see more, there's a picture of this double page as 
figure 3 in the intro of Textures' Users Guide, it's on p. 21 of the 
printed guide for v1.7 and on p. 32 of the dvi guide on the CD for 
v2.1. There you have the facing photograph of Dizzy Gillespie. How did 
this guy manage to eat with such jaws? (Apart from producing the 
beautiful noises in his trumpet, I mean).
