Publisher's Weekly: Autobiography of a Cover

A recent cover story of Publisher's Weekly focused on the amount of thought and energy that goes into creating the cover design for most YA books (the article focused on Sara Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series.) Although the article was perhaps a little light in content, it was interesting to get a behind-the-scenes explanation of how the covers are put together (though they failed to explain how so many covers can end up with the exact same photo!) I'm guessing the $26,000 price tag has something to do with it...
