Image of the cover of a paper back book. The title, author and other text are rendered in dark blue on off-white, rectangular panels. The panels have been made to appear dimensional along their right and lower edge. The cover is mottled blue-green, and has a dark stain along the left edge of the image as though the book had been water damaged. The corners of the cover have been made to appear worn.
