Both boxed sets and individual 3D book covers are addressed in this course.  Even if you don't work on book covers, you'll find the 3D effects useful in your future GIMP work.  
Learn to Create Reflections in Water  
Let me show you a nice water reflection effect that you'll be able to use in your own graphics.
