Mandy Ord’s front cover of The Suburban Review #24: UGLY is an up-close illustration of the lower half of a person’s face, looking up towards the top right corner of the frame. They are wearing a light blue surgical mask, covering their mouth but not their nose. We can see into the black void of their nostrils, with pores and nose hairs visible. Their skin is painted in greenish-yellow tones, the collar of a dark brown shirt visible at the bottom of the image. The person takes up most of the frame; the small glimpses of the background in the corners of the image are pitch black.
