The beige front cover shows a drawing of voluptuous woman dressed in pink dress with lace cuffs and bib as she carves a large turkey. The title, "How to Carve," is written in black writing. A gray line surrounds the drawing and title. The back cover contains a black and white drawing of a factory with "Home of 'Bay State' Flour. The finest flour milling plant in the world. A model of sanitary perfections. Bay State Milling Co., 4,000 barrels daily. Winona, Minnesota." Inside front cover has a diagram of a cow, divided into sections with corresponding descriptions of cuts of beef. The pamphlet begins with general instructions on the tools needed for carving and then is divided by the type of meat being carved, such as rib roast, sirloin steak, saddle or mutton, ham, fish. Each section has a black and white drawing with the meat or fish in color. The final two pages focus on flour and wheat cleaning under the title of "Another important question answered."
