The subtle pictorial card cover of the program itself is made of acetate through which you can faintly see the portrait of Mozart on the cover. There is a small chip at the top of the jacket's spine which is somewhat sharp, so I have placed it the jacket in a mylar cover. You can easily take it off if you don't want it.

This booklet is not often seen. It measures 5-3/4" x 8-3/4" and has 26 pages. The beauty of it is the blue illustrations throughout, all of which are large photos, 12 in all.
