Image of the cover and spine piece of a leather bound book. Title and authors are rendered in gold, and occupy the upper third of the image. The book cover is deep green in color. The image has been rendered so that the leather cover appears to have been embossed. This embossing consists of six concentric rectangles that surround the text.
