Right - if you check the PDF files from the earlier guides you find
that the covers, front and back, are 100% graphics (including the
text).
This is because the SVG source files were used to generate a PNG file
equal to the page format (A4) and that image is what is used as the
page background for the cover pages.
That is not the only way it could be done, but the SVG file itself is
not suitable for use directly in LibreOffice and you want to always
generate the graphic from that source file as a PNG for use in the
final document.

Best wishes,

Drew
