For reasons not pertinent here I have to produce a particular 
document, a book cover layout through pdflatex instead of pdftex.
I want to place a cover graphic that is full page size with no 
The easiest way I know to put things on a page at a particular 
location is \rput, so I turned to pdftricks. My test code is below:

\pdfpageheight 9.25in
\pdfpagewidth 12.36in
\pdfpageattr{/MediaBox[0 0 890 666]}
\hskip -1in
\vskip -1in

The graphic is not displayed but its name (ecoverb.pdf) is printed 
as text.  If I eliminate the references to pdftricks the graphic is 
displayed but I can't place it properly. 

Although I have been using TeX for over a decade I haven't used
LaTeX very  much.  So your assistance is appreciated.
