If you create a book with your own Lulu account, it automagically prints your name on the cover.
How does one get around this, if a book that's printed has more than the Lulu account holder as the author, or if the Lulu account holder desings and gets the book printed for another or collaborative author?

I assume a custom cover can be uploaded as a .pdf file, and used in place of the themes and templates already available? I will have to give that a larrup.

Yes, it is uploaded as a PDF.
The first step though is to look at the one piece cover requirements at the cover stage as there the correct dimensions are provided - and these must be adhered to.
Note - if the book has an ISBN number then a bracode must be included on the one piece cover.
Once you've made a one piece cover you'll never look back

There is also a mid-way option between using the Cover Wizard and uploading a fully formed PDF. The Cover Wizard provides an ImageOnly theme, which allows you to upload a JPEG or PNG image for the entire front cover and another one for the entire back cover. So you have 100% control of the front and back cover designs, and Lulu takes care of the tricky spine. It's just another option.
