I am really liking the way they did just the portions of the original covers on these books. They really are very beautiful. (I know I'm repeating myself from the other highlight, but they are!)

It's true though, they really are beautiful, stylish even with the art on the black background. Which reminds me I meant to add in notes as to where the artwork on each was originally used. Most is from US Whelan covers, but not all as you'll see with the rest of the books in the series. And not all are from the equivialent US version.

They are very nice yes, although using Whelan's White Dragon art on Chronicles First Fall might be a tad confusing for some

Very true, Hans. It can be hoped that those of us who know and just smile and shake our heads and that those who don't know won't get too confused.

WOW!!! I think these book covers are beautiful...and very different than anything that we have here. I like our full painting covers better though, but that is because I love looking at the artwork...gives us somewhere for our imaginations to start as we begin reading. Thank you Cheryl for sharing...nice collection!!!
