Is it possible to update the cover of the Anchor Bible Dictionary? Does everyone’s cover look like this?

Yes, same icon.

But you cannot change it!

I like it. What’s wrong with it?

For starters, it's on CD ROM. (I'd actually never noticed before now.)

But this would need to be modified to remove the volume information since the 6 volumes are listed as one resource. The one advantage of the CDROM version is it covers all volumes....

I noticed this a while ago, but what always bothered me more is that the icon is shorter than (and therefore lacks the same proportions as) the icons for my other books.

I just wasn't too hot on the low quality of the current pic.  Some other books' cover art seem to be that way as well.  But I kinda figured that was being nit-picky.  I'd prefer a better resolution "cover art" but it's pretty low on my priority list.  

But if we're gathering personal opinions - I like the red cover better although the Black one doesn't bother me.

That’s because it was on CD-ROM when it was first released for Logos. Rarely look at the covers of refefence resources so not really bothered by issues raised in this thread. I won’t loose sleep if it was changed.
