Bücherhäschen (usagimono) | 7 comments I've wondered since months... Changing covers on existing editions is not allowed on GR, but what if the picture is not actually the cover, but only a placeholder because the cover is not known yet.

I am allowed to change those as soon as the actual cover gets published, right? Or does existing editions mean that I can change as long as it is not actually published?

And what if they publish a cover, but change that before the book is actually out? Do I have to ask for help or would I be allowed to change that too? (Because this happened to a book I was reading last year xD)

Obvious placeholders can be replaced. (These usually say COVER COMING SOON or Cover Not Yet Available or similar.)

Pre-publication covers depend on whether they have been sent out (via ebook or print) as advanced review copies with that cover. If they have, we keep the ARC edition(s). If not, they can be changed as long as the cover was changed before the publication date.
