How To Fix The JPod Cover

here it is on WikiHow



douglas coupland’s latest book jPod seems to have a slight identity crisis. while the team of computer programmers is called jPod throughout the book, on the cover it is spelled JPod; at least on the US edition. the UK edition spells it correctly, jPod. if you happen to own the US edition of the book, here’s how to fix it.


1. assemble your materials: a brush, acrylic paint, masking tape, some water and the book

step 1

2. mask the letter J in two places using masking tape. it is best to use fairly new masking tape, to make sure it won’t tear the cover, when the tape is removed eventually

step 2

3. mix your acrylic paint to match the color of the book cover using as little water as possible

step 3

4. lightly stubb the paint onto the cover, carefully making sure not to get any paint underneath the masking tape

step 4

5. allow the paint to dry for a short while, in order to check if it matches the cover. note: color intensity of paint tends to get slightly darker upon drying. if necessary adjust the mix.
