I am delighted that The Legends of Light has had such a popular reception. “Very much in Tolkien’s class” said one reviewer, and it doesn’t get much better than that. The book doesn’t just have stirring tales of fantasy that took me right back to — well, to reading Tolkien as a teenager. It also has some great interior artwork. eBooks are a superb way to read books, but don’t always do great artwork justice. So we’re bringing this book out in paperback in a few months.
Here are a few images to whet your appetite.
We’ve got many of the images on our dedicated Legends web page. If you follow this link, and click on the thumbnail images, they will bring up a larger version. They are still reduced-quality, though. The paperback images are in their full uncompressed, 300dpi glory, although I must stress they will be greyscale images in the paperback. I did look at putting together a colour version. We have the capability, but I think the list price would work out something like $15, which might be a little steep. The initial list price for the non-colour US paperback will be $4.99. There will be a UK edition available directly through our website.
Very nice. I’m a fan of interior illustrations (even if they have to be grayscale to keep the cost reasonable), plus I love dragons.
Me too! I was thinking back to illustrated children’s books I read as a child, handed down a generation or two. They frequently had frontispieces for each chapter, and that was what I was after here.
We’ve actually got reasonably hi-res images elsewhere on the site. I’ll update to provide the link…
I love beautiful books, whatever the format. Nicely done, Tim.
Thanks, Sue. I’ve enjoyed making this one. Well, so far anyway. I haven’t seen the proofs yet.
