As digital review copies of books became more popular and I began buying audiobooks more often than physical copies, I had to improvise to be able to continue making content about the books I was reviewing that would stand out on Bookstagram. Plenty of Bookstagrammers do a great job making graphics for book recs, lists, reviews, and other content. I never ruled it out as an option for my account, but the part of content creating I enjoyed most was staging and editing photos.

So I looked through the hard covers I own, found one that was solid white under the dust jacket and started carrying it around with me to stage photos that I would later superimpose digital covers on in Adobe Photoshop. Here are a few examples, which you can hover your cursor over to see the original photo of.
