The beige back cover has red and white lines bordering color drawings of four Old Manse product containers. In the center of this design is a water color drawing of a farm house in winter, with smoke coming from two chimneys. The picture is of The Old Manse, Concord, Mass. where Emerson wrote "Nature."
