Check capitalization. Enter only the exact title of a single article with no [[link brackets]] or other formatting. It is also possible the indicated article was deleted.
Description

This is the front cover art for the book {{{Article}}}. The book cover art copyright is believed to belong to the publisher or the cover artist.

Source

It is believed that the cover art can or could be obtained from the publisher.

Article

[[{{{Article}}}]]

Portion used

The entire front cover. Because the image is a book cover, a form of product packaging, the entire image is needed to identify the product, properly convey the meaning and branding intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image.

Low resolution?

The copy is of sufficient resolution for commentary and identification but lower resolution than the original book cover. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable as artwork on pirate versions or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original artwork.

Purpose of use

Choose from Infobox / Header / Section / Author / Other

Replaceable?

As a book cover, the image is not replaceable by free content; any other image that shows the packaging of the book would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification or commentary.

Other information

Use of the book cover in the article complies with Wikipedia non-free content policy and fair use under United States copyright law as described above.

Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is to help users write fair use rationales for non-free book covers and other book art as required by WP:NFC and WP:FURG. Include this in the image file, once for each time you insert the book art image into an article.


Please use copyrighted content responsibly and in accordance with Wikipedia policy. A template alone does not make book cover art fair to use. It merely helps you state why you think it is appropriate.

This template is optimized for book cover art used in the article about the book. Other contexts may work, but it may not. Additionally, please note that this fair use rationale may not be appropriate, for example, for images of magazines, comic books, collections, or alternate editions. Before saving, try the "preview" feature to review the text produced by this template. Be sure the language is true and complete. If not consider using the override fields or a hand-written justification.
