An image of the back cover is also shown. Even though Penguins carried advertisements such as for chocolate, toothpaste, shoes and cigarettes (which helped to improve revenue) - it was unusual to place a Government notice. Because the problem of venereal disease was important (the subject of the book), a Ministry of Health advertisement 'coughs and sneezes spread diseases' was placed on the back cover. The inside covers also carry health adverts. The inside back cover is by the Central Council for Health Education and publicises '9 helpful booklets' on 'sex instruction' and 'venereal disease'. The inside front cover promotes immunisation against diphtheria.
