The front cover of this book shows a drowning Ole Kamp, the young captain of the Viking, up to his neck in the ocean waves, with a bottle bobbing before him, and the sinking ship behind him in the distance. A sea gull is hovering in the air above his head. The spine of the book shows Sylvius Hog, reading about the fate of the Viking."
