Been a while since I did one of these posts. The holiday season’s topics haven’t really been good for me. Glad to get back to it!
1. Kate Daniels – French
I love these covers so much. It is a shame I don’t speak French, because these covers are better than any English language one I’ve seen.
2. Seraphina – Polish
I really like the covers for these in English, but I really like these, as well.
3. Underland Chronicles – Chinese
Another series where I love the covers in English, but covet the foreign covers.
4. Dante Valentine – German
I love the play on colour and dark. It’s very similar to the original American versions, but different. Only thing theyré missing is the massive amounts of despair inside the books.
5. Georgina Kincaid – German
I have no idea what this art style is called, but I love it and wish I saw it more often on book covers.
6. Uprooted by Naomi Novik
Uprooted has so many beautiful foreign covers. Here are some. In order: German, Czech, Hungarian, Chinese
7. Codex Alera – German
I just love the simplicity and the style.
8. The Divine Cities – Russian
Well these just look badass. I love it. There are some other good foreign editions, too, like the Polish ones but I couldn’t find a full set for those.
9. Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere – Chinese
Don’t even ask me how they translate these behemoths. This style is so pretty, though. I hope the rest get covers like this, too.
10. Harry Potter – Persian
And now for the best one on my list!
I reigned in my impulse to make this thread of a bunch of covers that are less than pleasing to look at. I couldn’t hold it back any longer. Just look at it.
