Uber cool: Penguin is experimenting with do-it-yourself covers. See some examples here. I think all books should have DIY covers or none at all. This would level the playing field for authors who have the misfortune of getting an atrocious cover. And random people wouldn’t go around assuming things just because there’s a weird picture on the book you’re reading.
