Working for a variety of publishers the past ten years, I designed dozens of book covers, most of them non fiction. Often, they asked me to find an image for books on subjects hard to visualize; and often they explained their wish to get away from cliche images. For example, they asked me to design a book cover for a book on psychologie, but without an image of brains on it. There are too many like it around already.
