Cover Files for B/X D&D

If you bought the Basic and Expert rulebooks from, and want to get them printed up as a single book on lulu, you'll need to upload both PDFs, and then upload a cover file. Here's one I've made that you can use if you don't feel like making your own.

Note: This is not the file. Click the links below.
Note that these are made to fit over a 138-page interior, so you have 10 extra pages you can use to add house rules, custom indexes, or whatever. It should work fine if you use nothing but the two rulebook PDFs (128 pages), but I haven't tested that, so if it complains, just add a PDF of 10 blank pages to the end.

Note that you might see weird artifacts if you view it in google's preview thingy. Those don't show in adobe reader, and they also look fine printed.

Enjoy! If you make your own neat covers, I'd love to see them.


  1. The trouble is that the .PDFs you can purchase from dndclassics/DriveThruRPG/RPGNow are all password protected, and Lulu WON'T upload those.

  2. The PDFs both have grey backgrounds with blocks of black around some of the text. They do not look like the jpg. Is this correct?
