The front panel and spine of the jacket have text set in Rialto (Letraset, 1980), with the front panel featuring a subtle extension to the tail of the lowercase y that neatly replaces the dot of the lowercase i contained in the first name of the author. The back panel as well as the front and back flaps feature text set in ITC Souvenir, a highly popular soft serif of the era. Additional publishers information on the back flap is set in Helvetica.
The purple spine of the hardcover and interior title page also show text set in Rialto. Additional text from the title page is set in Palatino.
