Description Front cover; image and text. The text consists of the band name and record title running horizontally across the top of the cover. This is white and hand generated. The colour image is a hand rendered illustration of a wooden barn with a red roof. The barn has a small square window near the roof. It also has a hole in it where the main joins a smaller 'lean to' extension. The barn is situated in a fenced field. On the other side of the fence are some large trees. The sky behind the trees is depicted in graduated shades of blue, suggesting a sunrise in the distance. The complete image, inlcuding the text is outlined by a white frame. [AAF]
Description Back cover; image and text. The back cover consists of a hand drawn background of graduated shades of blue. It is pale at the bottom and dark at the top. In the top right hand corner are the words 'Limited Edition' and the record label number. The rest of the text is in the bottom third of the cover. It has all been hand written. The song titles are at the top and are larger than the rest of the text. The other text gives band, recording, production and art work details. In the bottom left corner is the Flying Nun logo. In the bottom right corner is a bar code. As on the front cover, the complete image, including the text is outlined by a white frame. [AAF]
