World Premiere for the Pern Museum & Archives:
Original artwork for cover of UK edition of Dragon Harper by Les Edwards


The Pern Museum & Archives is proud to announce that Les Edwards has kindly given us permission to be the first in the world to show the original artwork he did for the cover of the UK edition of Anne and Todd McCaffrey's new, upcoming Pern book Dragon Harper!

Edwards is a seven times winner of the British Fantasy Award for Best Artist and has been nominated three times for a World Fantasy Award. The cover for Dragon Harper will be his sixth Pern cover, while the cover for Todd Mccaffrey's Dragonsblood was even used for both UK and US editions. We kindly thank Les, whom we visited earlier this year, for this exclusive.

A fragment of the artwork is shown below; click this link to view a larger image of the complete artwork.


If you are interested in seeing more artwork by Les Edwards or in buying prints please visit his website at www.lesedwards.com, we heartily recommend it!

I do think Les' art is the best thing about Todd's books.

I'm not sure about the "horns" on the head but other than that, this is a fantastic work of art!

@Hans, I love this new cover art...it is so beautiful. Les is a magnificent artist and I am so glad that he is the one still doing Anne's Pern art covers. Thank you for sharing this with all the rest of us.;)

Another stunning work from Les - he really seems to have captured Pern quite well in his covers :good:

Congrats to you as well Hans for getting an exclusive ;)
