The Delicate Vice front cover. The scene is an urban scene at night. Two women, one brunette and one blonde, stand to the left of the image.

She is wearing white, low heels and is leaning against a cast-iron lighting pole to her left. She holds a cigarette in her right hand, arms stretched downwards. Her hair curls upwards over her ears. The brunette is standing to her left, facing the reader. She is wearing a purple blouse with short sleeves and a V-neck, and slim-fit black pants to her ankles, with black, flat shoes. Her hair is short and her legs are parted, left hand's thumb tucked inside her pants' pocket. She looks down at the blonde's chest. Behind the women, a street with buildings with neon lights is seen. Light comes out of doorways and windows, and the women are lit by light from the street lamp above their heads, casting their shadows on the ground below them.

Her left side faces the reader, and she sits with her left leg bent at the knee and turned outward toward her back, her foot bare. Her left hand is posed on her left calf and has a ring on its ring finger. Her right hand touches the edge of a blue and black cushioned sofa to her right. Her head is turned sharply to her left, and she looks straight out at the reader with a serious expression on her face. In the background, beside her on the sofa, a redhead with straight hair to her shoulder sits, with both legs folded atop the seat, feet facing right of the image. She is wearing a short, denim skirt and a brown, sleeveless blouse with buttons at the front and a V-neck. Her left hand is blocked by the figure who sits on the floor, and her right hand is holding a cigarette, elbow rested on the back of the chair. She is almost facing the reader; her body slightly twisted to her right. Her head faces the reader, but her sight is directed toward the other woman, with a serious expression. The scene is lit with natural light coming slightly from the left, casting a shadow of the black woman on the sofa and on the brick wall in the background.

Her left leg is slightly bent, with the foot to her side, pointing out. She looks down to her left at another woman, a brunette with short hair, who sits on a bed with red and white undone sheets, putting on a stocking on her left leg. She sits in full profile, facing left of the image, and is wearing a black negligee and low heel stilettos on her right foot. The right leg shows a stocking at mid-thigh, and the left foot is bare. A third woman, also a brunette, stands with her back to the reader on the forefront left of the image. She wears a black slip and looks as if she is about to take off a blue blouse.

Her gaze is directed at a seated woman to the right of the image, who has short hair and wears a blouse and short skirt and who is, with a slight smile, looking over her right shoulder towards a third woman who is also seated, on a purple cushion on the ground, and dressed in a blouse with rolled sleeves to her elbows, khaki shorts and boots, cleaning a long weapon with her legs crossed. Her hair is dark and curly, and she also seems to smile. Between them sits, her back to the reader, a fourth woman who appears to be fully naked.
