Jackie Morris to illustrate Dragon Keeper

12 Feb, 2009 filed under: Robin Hobb, England/UK

Jackie Morris, who recently illustrated the covers for the new UK editions of the Farseer, the Liveship Traders, the Tawny Man and the Soldier Son trilogies has received a part of the finished Dragon Keeper manuscript and will make the cover art for that book as well. She often posts progress report photos about her works at her fantastical journal so keep an eye on it.
Are we jealous or what? :P

Gahhhhhhh, bring back John Howe. No offense to these new, avant-garde minimalist covers, but I want my nicely illustrated scene-or-location-from-the-book thanks.

Not a picture of a thing. On a plain white or black background :(

John, have you seen the actual books? The backgrounds are not solid boring colours but very nice gilded tiles.
I’m a huge fan on both artists. On the other hand it will be weird not to have a JH hardcover book among the others, but on the other, I love Jackie’s elegant designs, and especially her dragons! :)

Death is always at the edge of now. Death stalks us, and he is ever sure of his kill. It is not a thing to dwell on, but it is something we all know, in our guts and bones. All save humans.
