Hack the Cover è un’interessante disanima sul destino della copertina al tempo dell’ebook (o meglio: di Amazon).
This is an essay for book lovers and designers curious about where the cover has been, where it’s going, and what the ethos of covers means for digital book design.

We’re looking for metrics other than images.
Why? Because — What do we now hunt when buying books? Data.
