Google books preview covers

Google books has the best quality covers I was looking for a way to get these covers it is not possible as far as I can tell to just copy and save the image.
I am not a programmer but recently I came across this webpage maybe someone can implement in a gui plugin to download covers.

download book cover from Google Books based on ISBN

I drag and drop Google (cover) images into Calibre all the time (I use the search the Internet PI).
You can drop an image onto the existing cover (placeholder) in either the Book Details or the Metadata editor.

You can copy the the front page of this book
http://books.google.com.sg/books?id=...page&q&f=false
if you can I would like to know what browser you are using as it doesn't work for me. The only way I have been able to get such images is by using chrome cache viewer.

Firefox 10
But I search Google Images and find the (same) cover, and that is copyable
