Permissions and credits
MWSE Daleth's Book Jackets
This is an MWSE implementation of Daleth's Book Jackets, using MWSE-lua to give each book a unique cover with no plugins required. This improves both performance and compatibility, plus frees up space in your load order.
The "00 Core Assets" sub-package contains the meshes, textures and icons from Daleth's Book Jackets (which are required for the mod to work). The fixed mesh for A Dance in Fire, Chapter 4 (that was included in "Book Jackets Alt" and "Book Jackets Fix") is included in this sub-package.

The "01 MWSE Component" sub-package contains the MWSE-lua files that change the covers and icons of the game's books. This is also required for the mod to work (though if you're using Enchanted Library you shouldn't install this sub-package because Enchanted Library includes its own MWSE files).
Additionally, there are three optional sub-packages with alternate versions of a few books:
Alt Special Flora of Tamriel: Contains alternate, more subtle, texture and icons for this book. From "Book Jackets Alt."
No Glow Mapping: Removes the glowmapping from the books The Book of Daedra and The Firmament. From "Book Jackets Alt."
Alt The Firmament: A more subtle version of this book that doesn't stand out so much. From "Book Jackets Fix" by Petethegoat.
Use a mod management tool such as Wrye Mash; install at least the "00 Core Assets" and "01 MWSE Component" sub-packages, along with any of the optional sub-packages you want to install.
Alternatively, copy the data directories (Icons, Meshes, Textures, MWSE) from each sub-package you want to install to your Data Files directory.
Do not use the original Book Jackets plugins along with this mod. That would defeat the purpose of using MWSE.
This mod requires MGE XE and the latest version of MWSE 2.1. Just install MGE XE and run MWSE-Update.exe to download the latest build.
I recommend using Melchior's Magnificent Manuscripts, in particular the Book Jackets compatibility patch from that mod, which improves many of Daleth's meshes. Just install the Book Jackets patch from MMM after this mod.
This mod should be compatible with basically anything. It's more compatible than the original Book Jackets plugins; you can use any mod that changes books along with this one with no need for an object merger like tes3merge.
If you use a plugin that changes the meshes or icons of the affected books, those changes will be overridden by this mod.

You can also use Enchanted Library with this mod, which will improve the appearance of many books compared to Daleth's versions. If you use Enchanted Library, install only the Core Assets sub-package from this mod, not the MWSE Component sub-package, because Enchanted Library contains its own MWSE component. (You also don't need any of the three optional sub-packages from this mod, because Enchanted Library will override those files anyway.)

This mod would obviously not exist without Daleth and the enormous amount of work he put into Book Jackets (Tribunal, Bloodmoon). The meshes, textures and icons in this mod are almost all Daleth's work.
Also included is the work of the unknown author of "Book Jackets Alt," who fixed the mesh for A Dance in Fire, Chapter 4, and also created the alternate version of Special Flora of Tamriel and the no glowmapping fix.
In addition, the alternate version of The Firmament (which I much prefer) is from Petethegoat's "Book Jackets Fix."

You can use the MWSE-lua code in this mod however you want. If you use any of the meshes, textures or icons, be sure to credit the original creators.
