Black and red create a monstrous valentine scene of a woman, mouth open in gasp or scream, with eyes open wide in fright and dressed in loose clothes has her throat clenched by a flat headed, large browed, creature with a grim and almost restful expression. The woman, her back bent away from her attacker, pushes her hand against his shoulder and while using her other hand to try and pull away his. They are surrounded by lab equipment, computers and dials, in what looks like an underground cavern. The title is across the top edge in large print and “Ann Mary Shelley” underneath.
