Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Books

Bookworms are weird. Case in point: Book photography. I told my friend about it one day, and she didn't get it. To her, the cover was the art, so why do you need a whole picture? We just do because they're so pretty and we like to touch them and look at them and arrange them with other pretty things and can never have enough of them and that's just how much we love books. Which brings me to the...

It also sounds like it's going to have lots of dragon-y goodness (well, some of the characters are kind of part-dragon, but they also have dragon...
