Image of the front cover and spine piece of a dust jacket for a book. The title, author and other text are rendered in black on a light orange 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 figure, seated behind a desk. The figure looks out at the viewer while holding a pen as though poised for writing.
