Cover art
« on: February 12, 2015, 07:17:13 PM »
So, now that we have a release date, I need to start reading some steampunk to learn what the genre's all about. When do we get to see the cover art so we can get excited about the characters and making up WAGs about them? Do we know yet who's doing the art? Will there be an audio version, too? I don't suppose Marsters will be doing it? (Not important for me, I don't do audio. I can't pay attention well enough and miss all the good stuff.)

I need to get really, really excited about this, since it's going to be so long before the next Dresden book. Butcher addict gotta get her fix somehow! I can only re-read the whole series once every two or three months, you know...

I belong to a fan group on Facebook and one of the members of the group is Chris McGrath's mother (Chris McGrath is the cover artist for the Dresden Files).  According to her, McGrath did the cover for Aeronaut's Windlass and she says it is his best work to date. Can't wait to see it!

Any chance of a copy-less version?

Actually, I found a clean version on McGrath's twitter:

I now have my new screensaver! Until the next Dresden book cover, of course!
Thanks!

Oh...that is a great, great cover. I agree.

The covers Michael Whelan did for Tads books are really among his very best. I wish he had stayed around for all the Shadowmarch novels too.
