Book mockup with included Book Model - How do I size the Cover Graphic?

I've never used Dimension beyond a quick look, and I thought I would give it a try for a simple Book mockup. I have the cover in both Illustrator and Photoshop formats, but no matter what size I make the cover artwork it will not match the proportions of the 3D model. If I scale the artwork once placed on the model I either lose part of the title or image or I have blank spots that don't fill. If I try to scale the object after I place the art, it skews the artwork. I'm baffled.

 

I saw one post with a video about UV mapping and I tried that, but it really just made things worse. This seems like the simple thing this program was meant for so I'm sure I'm missing something basic. Any suggestions appreciated.

Okay, I figured it out. My brain was only thinking about the front cover, not the entire cover that wraps around the book. Duh. So basically you have to think of it as if you were actually printing a physical book, with the cover+spine+back all one image.
