Generally speaking, most authors don’t get to choose the art that grace the covers of their books. Many authors luck out and get some spectacular cover art for the a book release, but it’s rare that an author scores again and again.
And here comes another edition of Ekaterina Sedia’s book The Alchemy of Stone. I’ve seen three versions of this book’s cover (shown above):
- The trade paperback (art by David Defigueredo)
- The mass-market paperback (art by Andrä Martyna)
- The Italian edition (art by Roberto Pitturru)
Three image, three separate artists, all of them absolutely spectacular.
