I considered posting these in the Eulalia! thread, where they were asked about, but that seemed to be derailing the topic of the thread a bit too much, so a new thread it is. ;)

Ferahgo asked about the full covers for Loamhedge, Rakkety Tam, and High Rhulain, so I sent over a request of Mr. Wyatt and he's kindly sent all three back. Rather than post just those three, here's all five of Wyatt's covers, in full, without any text blocking them.

Please do not take these for other sites.

From David: "Sharp eyed viewers may spot the deliberately distorted perspective on the back of Rakkety Tam which was necessary for any type the publishers needed to put on the cover. Unfortunately it means the picture doesn’t quite flow when looked at in this format...."

The covers are a lot more breathtaking when seeing the full pictures. "Triss" used to be my favorite of the bunch, but now it's back to "Rakkety Tam". They're all impressive though, I even like the "High Rhulain" cover more.

They are all incredible!

I'm assuming that I can't use the Eulalia! cover for the e-zine? I'm going to be doing a cover review on the UK and US version of Eulalia, and on the 20th Anniversary cover.

I love them all! The whole covers are breath taking! I love the mountain in high rhulain.

For some reason I'd never noticed that it was raining on the Loamhedge cover before. Huh. :shades: Seeing them like this is awesome. The dramatic composition of the HR cover is increased tenfold when you can see the Deeplough looming over all of Green Isle. :cool:

Awesome, awesome, awesome. :redsy

I love that to, because I was cheesed in a matter of speaking when I got HR in Trade Paperback and basically the hole back cover was covered with the blurb on a brown decorated backboard:mad:
