Who says POD covers stink? (I do, of course)

Yes, POD covers are pretty much bottom of the barrel. In fact, I have become quite deft at knowing if a book is POD or not simply by looking (even glancing) at the cover. However--not all POD covers stink, and here is your proof.

This cover (click to make it larger) comes from an anthology (published by Lulu) of stories, poems and essays to benefit the Red Cross for the Katrina victims. This is, without a doubt, one of the best covers I have seen in the POD world, and easily as good as the far majority of covers in the "traditionally published" world. Let's hope this is the beginning of a new wave in book covers for print-on-demand.
