Image of the front cover and partial spine piece of a dust jacket for a book. The title is rendered in dark blue on a grey background. The cover is illustrated with a black and white photographic image that has been collaged onto the surface of the print. The illustration depicts a male and female figure in the foreground. There are several more less-defined figures in the background. Both the left and right edges of the cover are printed to appear as damaged or torn.
