Choice of book cover colors
I just picked up Neil Gaiman's Smoke and Mirrors - great book, but the cover is purple, with silver lettering, giving it the aura of a cheap supermarket romance novel. How am I supposed to read that on the subway? (See? This really is a traffic-related idea...)
A couple years ago, Filth (Irvine Welsh) came out in a choice of blue, green, yellow, and pink covers. Why can't choices like this be available for all books? Even better, design a machine that will allow you to apply your choice of color to a blank cover, with a stencil to cover lettering and pictures.
Reward: Smoke and Mirrors in green, please.
