I am beginning to fall helplessly in love with the French cover artwork. And it is hard to resist when they produce cover illustrations like this one. This is the cover art for the Stephen Deas’ debut novel, “The Adamantine Palace”, published by Gollancz in March this year and which was released on the French market by Pygmalion on 17th of June. The cover illustrator is Alain Brion, as it is stated on the book page on the Pygmalion Fantasy website. And although the dragon on the cover is not exactly as Stephen Deas would have seen it I still believe that it’s a wonderful and powerful illustration.
