Spoiler for Hiden:

I just love the book cover for "The Dark Defiles". From art, through title and to it's "fracture".

ps. Your link does not work.

Tolkien's 'Story of Kullervo'.  It's exquisite, like a work of fine art.  I tried attaching but 19kb is too large!

I suspect we'll get very different opinions from our U.S. and U.K. members.

Are we talking about the, hmm, interesting red cover with blobs of dripping colours?

I really was captivated by this one - the screen doesn't do it justice, in real life you can hardly read:

At home in the Fantasy Faction forum!

That's the one Scarlet.  It's just such a beautiful image, and the screen really doesn't do it justice :)
