Memorabilia of the Week: Controversy Between camera-ready art?

File this under one of those "huh?" collector's items...or else "one man's trash is another man's treasure" department.

It took me awhile to figure out exactly what these are. From appearances these seem to be camera-ready transparencies (acetates?) for the artwork from the original release of the EP "Controversy Between" on Himalaya Records, HIM 006 to be exact.
I obtained them from another collector in a lot of 242 memorabilia. At first glance I thought they were for advertising in print media, but upon examination of the record itself, this is the artwork  that appears on the vinyl label.

What one can do with them, that I do not know. I will eventually spotlight that record as a "Record of the Week..."
