Glauber helped design and was the art director of the original "roasting spit" version of tmbg.com with The Chopping Block. She designed the album covers for the beautiful Factory Showroom—using fonts designed by Jonathan Hoefler—as well as John Linnell's State Songs, and the compilation albums Dial-A-Song: 20 Years Of They Might Be Giants and A User's Guide To They Might Be Giants. Glauber was additionally responsible for the Hello CD Of The Month Club artwork as well as the original postal fan club newsletters (before they were replaced by the internet).
