Great Fun with Amazon images

Abusing Amazon images:
" feeds out a lot of product images, putting out the same book cover (say) in a variety of sizes and formats. By experimentation, I found that they don't actually have all the sizes and formats stored. Instead, they have a system that generates each requested image. The details of size and format are built into the image's URL."
great details on the URL structure of Amazon images.

Read it, learn it, live it.
