Two figures facing each other in mirrored stances dominate the cover. The first, in the forefront is in dark clothes, cloak, tights, and hat leaning back against his long walking stick away from the figure in front of him. The other, almost ghostly, is a giant dressed in white clothes with red trim. His hair is long and flies out in the wind. One hand is on his chest and one, almost in a fist is held out behind him. He looks down at the dark figure in front of him with wide, almost crazed,  eyes. Behind both of them, two snowy mountain peaks take up the background under a grey sky while below them a grey valley stretches out making them look very high up. The title and “By Mrs. Shelley” appear in the top right corner.
