Book covers blended together...

Post by darthbuzz »

I love it when the book covers make a picture when together. The 3 in the FC fontana publications and have seen the FC of the Del Rey ones together but not all 6 from the FC and SC. I would like a good copy of all these editions.
Hope you like it but it has probably been seen and done before.

The Dutch versions are interesting. The translations are:

The Curse of Lord Veil
The War of Extermination
Golden Fire
The Power That Retains

Thank you Lazy Luke. They are really nice covers and have never seen these before. There is very little TC art out there.

This was really a post to show how each cover on that series links into the next one and when they are all together make a whole picture. I would like to butcher 6 of them and hang them on the wall in a frame together. I think it is very clever.

Here is the other one I mentioned (not done by me)... the background scenery makes 1 picture.

Book cover art is usually such a disappointment to me.

I've read (probably here) that the artist is only given a brief page of info about the story or maybe even just a few sentences before they start.

I try to agree about the whole "never judge a book..." thing but I do.
If I don't like the cover it will keep me from buying a book.
You know....back when there were bookstores.

I am a bit of a pedantic, OCD type and find it absolutely infuriating that there are no fontana book covers, the ones with the circle on the front, for my folders for the last 2 books.
There doesn't seem to be matching covers for all 10 books. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I guess that is just me. :evil:

OK, this is now a thread of your favorite Covenant book covers because I enjoyed seeing the Dutch ones Lazy Luke kindly shared.

If the pictures don't match up to form another picture then so be it. I just like to see the artwork.

Thank you in advance. 8)

I rather enjoy seeing the book covers blended together like darthbuzz did in this thread's original post. A belated "good post" award to him from me for doing that.

I once had an opportunity to buy all six of these, and have forever been kicking myself for not doing so.

Title aside, these are the covers I first read. Still have some/all of them in a box somewhere.

I've got these sealed in plastic in a box in the basement. If there comes a time to open it, I'll post images so maybe we can get the pic recreated sans watermark.
