Description Front cover; image and text. The front cover is comprised almost entirely of a black and white, backlit, over-exposed photograph of the three members of the Dead C. Their stance is that of a typical rock band (arms in pockets or folded), reminiscent of numerous other "rock band" covers featuring a posed studio shot of the artists. However the grainy 'fade out' running up towards the top of the image serves to deconstruct this archetypal look. The image is framed by two borders; a white border inside a black border. The words 'The Dead C vs Sebadoh' run vertically down from the top right hand side of the record in black san-serif upper case type. [DM KY FJ]
Description Back cover; image and text. The back cover is similarly comprised of one large grainy image. This appears to be an appropriated image of a large architectural structure made from brick. It appears to be built around a courtyard, and is characterised by a grid of semi-circular windows or recesses, some of which contain busts or figures. Information about the record label runs along a white border at the bottom of the image. This is in an irregular typewriter typeface. [KY]
