Red cloth, the title in gilt and interspersed with small inverted teardrops. The whole encompassed by two overlapping frames in white with blocked plinths and cornices. To the centre, a tau cross with tapering trunk rises up to bisect the frames. A downward-pointing ovoid shape overlaid, to enclose two stems that rise up from the base and terminate in flame-like buds. Small blocked verticals to centre bottom and top corners. To spine, red cloth with gilt sans serif letters interspersed with blind inverted teardrops. To either end, a white upward-pointing stem terminates in two flame-like buds, enclosed in part by an ovoid form. Small dots to either side.
