How to: Creating custom iBook covers

Filed under: iPadDo you find yourself downloading a lot of the free Project Gutenberg public domain books in the iBookstore? Sick of your bookshelf looking like a series of paper bags with text printed on them? Me too, so I decided to create my own covers for all the free books I've downloaded.

If you've ever added custom album artwork to an iTunes song, you get the basic idea of how to change the cover art of a Project Gutenberg book in your iTunes library. If you haven't, I'll quickly list the steps here:

    In your iTunes library, select the Books category in the source list.
    Select any book that shows it has no cover, right click on it, and select "Get Info."
    Select the "Artwork" tab.
    Drag and drop any image into the white box on the artwork tab and click Okay. Voila! You've just added a custom cover to your ebook.
