Description Front cover; image and text. The front cover image is a black and white porrtait photograph of the singer. He is turned towards the camera and is smiling. His hair is tidy and he is wearing a dark jacket and tie with a white shirt. The image has been placed on the left side of the cover. The background of the cover has been divided horizontally into three areas of varying width. The top section is purple and contains the text 'More Peter Posa Hits'. 'More' is in black and is the largest word on the cover. It is aligned to the top left corner of the cover. Underneath the 'e' of 'More' the word 'Peter' begins, the word 'Posa' begins under the end of the word 'Peter'. The word 'Hits' sits under the beginning of the word 'Posa'. In much smaller text, the song titles are printed in black and purple on the white background. The Viking logo is aligned to the bottom right corner of the cover with the record label number. [AAF]

It has been divided in two places by thin purple lines that run horizontally from one edge of the cover to the other.The song titles sit between these two lines. The name of the recording artist and the record are at the top of the page. There is information about other Peter Posa releases, recording and copyright details and playing instructions below the song titles. The record company logo and label number have been aligned left at the bottom of the page. The text is in purple and black, and is a mix of serif and sans serif, upper and lower case, and some is italicised. [AAF KY]
