Cover art: A Princess of Mars in age of POD

I’ve compiled a gallery on Flickr of more than 20 different covers of A Princess of Mars (1917), the seminal SF novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, all from the current digital age in which public domain works can be printed-on-demand and covered with DIY art. Some of these covers are pretty lame, but a few are actually quite creative. My favorite is pictured here, with artwork derived from Frank E. Schoonover's timeless piece for the classic first edition.
