kdpcover – Covers for books published by Kindle Direct Publishing

The problem this class solves is the necessity to change the size of the cover PDF according to the number of pages in the book — the bigger the book, the larger the spine of the book must be. The provided class makes the necessary calculations on-the-fly, using the qpdf tool. Obviously, you need to have it installed. Also, you must run pdflatex with the --shell-escape option, in order to allow to run qpdf.
