[Slackdocs] E-book version of Wiki content

I have not explicitly mentioned http://docs.slackware.com/epub:slackbook 
in earlier posts, but a thread on LinuxQuestions 
triggered me that people are not aware that an EPUB version of the 
Slackware Linux Essentials, Revised"" book (Wiki edition can be 
downloaded from our Wiki.

The SlackDocs Wiki has an "epub" extension which allows to define the 
content of a custom book (you select the pages) and then create an EPUB 
book out of that.
On the page http://docs.slackware.com/epub:slackbook I defined an EPUB 
by adding all the chapters of our WIki version of the Slack Book and 
running the generator on that definition. The resulting EPUB book is 
http://docs.slackware.com/_media/epub:alienbob:2015_july_23_05-55-47.epub , 
a URL which is accessible on that page even for visitors without editor 

Challenge to you, the mailing list audience: I need a cover page for 
that EPUB book!

The official cover of the paper book "Slackware Linux Essentials" (see 
http://it-book.pro/img/books/14.png) looks nice but the Revised book is 
not written by these original authors, it was a community effort to 
rejuvenate the original book. The printed version of this Revised 
edition lists Alan Hicks as additional author next to the three original 
ones: https://store.slackware.com/images/sp/slackbook.gif

The Slack Book Beta is yet another incarnation of the book - re-written 
by Alan Hicks to get rid of the GPL restrictions of the original - is 
what we imported into our WIki.

What I want is a cover image in the spirit of the original. That image 
(if one is created) will be added to the EPUB book.
