At the top of the window in red, stylized text is the publication title: [Zygote]. In the upper left corner, outside the arch, is the date in black type: [PDC/Jan. 8, 1971]. In the upper right corner, outside the arch, is the price, listed in black type inside a yellow circle outlined in orange [50¢]. The window is depicted with a floral motif on either side.

Below the window, on a light blue background are several paragraphs and columns of text listing the publisher information; the policy on accepting reader-written work; the staff, including artists, photographers, and contributors; and table of contents.
