Machine learning methods allow computers to use data in less and less structured form. Such data formats were available only to humans until now. This in turn gives opportunities to automate new areas. Such systems can be used for supporting administration of big e-commerce platforms e.g. searching for products with inadequate descriptions. In this paper, we continue to try to extract information about books, but we changed the domain of our predictions. Now we try to make guesses about a book based on an actual cover image instead of short textual description. We compare how much information about the book can be extracted from those sources and describe in detail our model and methodology. Promising results were achieved.
