The original concept sketch and the finished cover.
However, you can nevertheless usually still judge some things from the cover of a book. For example, if the cover shows a dude and a lass looking lovingly into each other's eyes over a romantic candlelit dinner then you can guess that it's probably a romance novel. Or if the cover shows a werewolf under a Full Moon then it's a fairly safe bet that werewolves will feature in the story somewhere. So in most cases you can generally at least judge the genre of the book by its cover.
