I’m long overdue to do this tag. I was tagged for it by Chitra of Books and Strips back in April last year (yeah, long time ago) but I kept putting it off because I wanted to take pretty pictures for it to put on IG. (Sigh) I’ve yet to get around to doing that so I’ll just post this without them.
- Thank the person who tagged you.
- Mention the creator of this tag: (Tiana @ The Book Raven)
- Use the original tag image in your post.
- At least tag one fellow blogger to do this tag!
- List the rules.
“No Ideas But in Things” — A book cover that perfectly expresses the novel inside it
The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan
This is the fourth book in Jordan’s epic fantasy series, Wheel of Time, about a farm boy who must save the world.
My answer for this is all the U.S. covers for the Wheel of Time series that are illustrated by Darrell K. Sweet. Sweet does a great job of capturing a scene from the story on the cover. Some readers don’t like this sort of cover saying it gives away too much of the story, but these are the sort of covers I love best, especially for fantasy novels. They give us a visual representation of the story. I like to look back at such covers as I read to see if it really matches the story. Sweet’s covers definitely do so.
Here’s is the full cover (out in the Aiel Waste). The parts not seen above appear on the back cover.
