Kevin, one does not need to include a cover image within the body of the EPUB. Each EPUB has a marketing image(cover) and that is automatically displayed on a proper reader as I described.
But Ken, that is what I said and I have said it often ...
What I said is that Lulu Help keep calling the Marketing Image the 'cover'.

Can we get which wordage to use sorted out? Standardized? To those of us use to creating 'real' books with 'real' covers, to then be calling an image that is just the icon to click on to access a book a 'cover' and also used as an 'advert' is confusing, especially when the Project Wizard calls it a Marketing Image (and does not ask you to name it, as Lulu Help thinks it does). Lulu call it the Cover OR the Marketing Image. It should always be referred to as the Marketing Image if that is what it is called in the Project Wizard.
To me, the 'cover' of an epub (or whatever ebook type) would be if you put an image on the first 'page' on your 'pages' file (as per a PDF because they can be printed out as a book). It is that I thought Lulu Help was telling me to change the name of, when I knew I did not have images in my pages file! Or a name!

i want to make a book that had writing as well as images. some of the images i'd like to have full bleed.
some images would be low quality.
i have downloaded both landscape and square (8.5x8.5)
i'd prefer the landscape but could only use/see the square when registering with lulu.
what do you suggest?
also, what should be on the first page of the doc file downloaded from lulu.
should i leave it empty? write the copyright statement on it? or the title of the book?
also, will there be anything writen on the back of the front cover?
please reply soon.
thanks. i can't seem to find a way to send this message.
