Francesca Restrepo provided the art direction and design. For the cover, she used a photograph by Czech photographer Jan Saudek titled “Fate Descends Towards the River Leading Two Innocent Children”, which was taken in 1970. The loosely spaced caps used for the band name look like they were made with a Dymo or a similar embossing tape machine. It’s not clear if they are from a font or not. All other text from the album title to the lyrics and credits is set in FF Justlefthand, mostly in horizontally stretched caps with (faux) small caps. The handwriting font by Just van Rossum was issued by FontFont in 1990. Coincidentally, Van Rossum also made a Dymo-inspired typeface named FF Dynamoe, released in the same year as Grave Dancers Union.
