Description Front cover; image and text. The band name and song title typography is a bold reversed sans serif font, white on a flat blue, which occupies the top half of the cover. The lower half of the cover is a composite image of two views of a woodcut image, possibly from the middle ages or earlier historical period. This depicts two figures, one wearing a crown. The other figure is holding a knife and may be a religious figure such as Jesus. [DM]
Description Back cover; image and text. The back cover is stylistically similar to the front but the images are differently cropped and rotated. The lettering style of the band name and song title is the same as that of the front. Additional information runs in white lettering reversed out across the bottom of the single in a modern teletext or computer terminal style of font. [DM]
