A square photograph of Sofia Sabbagh is set against a banner, with a patterned black and grey design of a zoomed-in photograph of weeds. Sofia wears a camo patterned baseball cap and black sleeveless top, has curly brown hair and dark eyes, and faces out from the frame, playing a flute at a grassy campground. ‘Weeds, an interview with Sofia Sabbagh’ is written on the banner, to the right of Sofia's image. The letters of ‘Weeds’ are capitalised, and filled in with the photographed lacework of Maggie Hensel-Brown that is featured on this issue’s cover.

A photograph of photographer Carmen Hau set against a collaged background of tiled construction, with a yellow emoji with its thumbs up and an image of the cover of #24: UGLY. Carmen stands outside, in front of an outdoor playground. She wears a white cap and shirt, has her arms crossed, and peers into a camera screen, mounted on a pole. 'AHH!' and 'NEW ISSUE OUT NOW!' is hand scrawled in white pen across the entire image.
