The yoyo of the universe!
Probably my favorite cover of the books I own. Not a scene from the book, but I like it.

[QUOTE=Bard;529347]I have fond memories of these as well:
I too, absolutely love Dragonbone Chair!! Perdido Street station! I wish I had the bookcover to shaman's crossing...better than the one I have!!

The complete cover of Dragonbone Chair, with the back of the book included is even more gorgeous......And the same for Stone of Farewell...I love Michael Whelan's artwork...
City of Golden Shadow by Tad Williams is also a very nice cover...

Im a fan of cover art that isnt flashy and doesnt really have characters and what not on the cover, love the art from Robin Hobbs books by John Howe. Really like the Spooks books covers as well but they have changed them now to get more people into them.... just hope they keep this style for newer books as well.

Hi, Bear. Yet again we seem to have very similar tastes.

Two books by Jeffrey Overstreet with very fetching covers (that look even more stunning in treeware)

My first post here,
I've been around for a while, but never posted anything, but a book cover is something that interests me a lot.
Before finding this place (due to a lack of searching) I never really knew what to read and the cover of the book was many times something that pulled me over to read it (I found WoT like this). If a book didn't had a cover that I liked, I wouldn't bye it.
Now that I'm reading here and have a rather to-read list this is not that important any more, but I still wouldn't be compelled to bye a book with an ugly cover
Here is one of my favorite covers:
Licia Troisi (http://www.liciatroisi.it/homepage-en/)
I don't think this book is translated to english yet though, but I've read in dutch and I liked it (Too bad it is the only book translate to dutch so far)! There is some nice artwork of her other books on the site too.

Indeed. Bear hit my wishlist with that Swanwick cover. Cranky H also hopped on with Jemisin's cover for The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.
