To make your book more elegant on GitBook, you can specify a cover.
A cover is specified by a cover.jpg file, a cover_small.jpg can also exist as a smaller version of the cover. The cover should be a JPEG file.
A good cover respects the following guidelines:
- No border
- Clearly visible book title
- Any important text should be visible in the small version
A GitBook plugin (
autocover) can also be used to generate a cover file for you, or just generate the
cover_small.jpg from your big cover. This plugin is added by default on hosted books.
