Cover art - "The Wise Man's Fear" by Patrick Rothfuss (French edition)

One of my favorite fantasy covers is the one made by Marc Simonetti (one of my favorite fantasy artists for that matter) for the French edition of Patrick Rothfuss“The Name of the Wind”, published by Bragelonne. It is one of the best examples of top quality in book covers. Well, now the respective book cover pales a little, because Marc Simonetti managed to surpass his amazing work with not one new wonderful book cover, but two. Bragelonne opted to publish the French edition of Patrick Rothfuss“The Wise Man’s Fear” in two volumes, the first due to be released in August and the second in October. Bragelonne also chose to follow the line of the first cover and asked Marc Simonetti for two new artworks. The results can be seen now and are hardly in need of any comment. They are simply stunning!
