Fans sometimes design their own versions of cover art for pro novels. This may be inspired by their reaction to the official cover(s). Bookcover design may be proposed as a challenge, in which case it may be a fan contest with a winner selected from the submissions. Book covers can similarly be designed for books that don't actually exist (for example, imaginary books written by or about characters).
