Good point.  It also may sometimes be the fault of whoever
designed the DJ.  The width alloted for the DJ spine on my
hardcover copy of Sudermann's "Song of Songs" (a big book
at 640 pages) does not seem quite adequate (not wide enough)
for the actual width of the book spine (thus DJ cover text is
wrapped around the onto the DJ spine).

I am curious if any of you try to correct mis-aligned DJs
(it is sometimes possible) and which is worse - a misalligned
DJ or additional folds in the DJ from trying to allign it?
