It would seem simple enough to cover a 4"x4" book, however, the unusual spine slot of this book is constructed of three layers of book board. There are edges and viewable areas of the slot to conceal, and different thicknesses of book board to consider. Rather than waste a good piece of covering material with mistakes, I make a copy paper template for a trial fit, then make a dry run of the glue down sequence. I don't want to solve problems when the glue is out. Note: it took one more template to arrive at the final fit.
[because they ask]
At a certain time of the year, the evening sun hits the bathroom mirror, bouncing light across the hall, then off the glass of a framed print, that in turn cast the shadow of the desk chair onto the wall and door casing left of the opened front door i.e. light bounced two times to cast a shadow and a glimpse of the world beyond.
