Abusing Amazon images for decorative art on your own web pages makes use of Amazon’s processor and bandwidth. While Amazon is generally good about letting people use their systems for interesting projects, it should be remembered that they make access available in order to ultimately sell more stuff.
This is a great way of finding large size album art. Amazon offers a wide variety of sizes as well as a plethora of overlay images that can be selectively added or removed. It might be far more effort than you are willing to take to get some album art, but it’s a great start. Perhaps someone can take this base code and then implement an easier to use interface or even some type bulk searching application.
