Jacket: The box-shaped jacket is constructed of coated black, marbleized stock, notched in the center of the open edges. There is an incised outline of a quarter-moon in the lower right-hand section of the top half; gold from the sun design on the front cover appears within the outline when the book is encased in the jacket.
Book, front and back covers: Dark green cloth; spine bound in black cloth, extending about two inches each onto front and back.
Front cover: An ideogram of the sun in an antique style is stamped in metallic gold in the upper half; directly underneath, a daybook is imprinted, also in gold, in lower case type, italicized except for the initial letter a and the letter d.
Spine: With the object laid flat and the back cover down, a daybook may be viewed, imprinted in gold in the same style as on the front, accompanied on each side by a thin gold line, gradually narrowing from the center outward. With the object standing, M&Co/ Vol.3 may be read at the lower edge.

On the dark green, immediately to the right, are thirteen numbers, one per line, in ascending order of magnitude, but imprinted in descending degree of boldness. Above each number, a line of type identifies a statistic related to that number; for example, on first line, above the numeral 8, is The number of jobs the average worker has held by the age of forty, and on the last, above the number
