As I said many times before I am not a big fan of the characters on cover, especially when the artwork clearly outlines the character of the book. However, when the artwork of the respective character is truly beautiful I have nothing against it. One such case is the series of covers made by Raymond Swanland for the Pyr editions of James Barclay’s “Legends of the Raven” novels. We have seen the amazing covers for the first three novels of the series, but the cover artwork for the “Ravensoul”, the novel that concludes James Barclay’s series, is the best of all in my opinion. Raymond Swanland saved the best for last and the result is this truly stunning book cover.
