Description The back cover image is a black and white photograph of a globe of the moon, showing a highly contrasted moon surface covered in craters. The image has been flipped horizontally during the photographic printing process so that the lettering on the globe now appears back to front and upside down. The hand of the person holding the globe is visible in the bottom left corner of the cover. The face of the same person has been obscured by a dolls face mask. Lettering for credits and track listing has been added later using Photoshop.
Description The front cover image is a high contrast 35mm black and white photograph of the cloth front on a Gunn guitar amplifier. The image has been photographically reprinted and then scanned into a computer where the type for the name of the record "Heazlewood" has then been added and skewed to roughly match the angle that the Gunn logo is on. The material often used on amplifier covers contains a repetitive patterning which has featured on other record covers over the years.
