Book Jacket

Does anyone know if there is a site or some place where I can find a better book jacket css for Calibre?

I want to put more of my custom columns in as well as use different styling and in the case of a catalog, a new cover.

I have read the css of the current one, but instead of spending a lot of time figuring out how to change it, if there was some kind of template or place I could go that I could create a new one from scratch it would be nice.

CSS does not affect what appears ON the 'Jacket page'

you want to create a custom Jacket template
Open C:\Program Files\Calibre2\app\resources\jacket
Copy template.xhtml

to
C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\calibre\jacket

Now edit that (there is a note inside about custom columns)

Did you look in the Plugboard, template, and custom composite column recipes sticky.

If you want something 'fancy' you'll probably have to learn HTML/CSS coding.
