Book Cover Art

I haven't posted book cover art in a while, so I thought it was time to share a few more of my favorites. I apologize to all the purists out there, but I have removed the text and cropped the images leaving just the art. I often do this with commercial art/illustration to isolate the image and remove the "commercial" aspect from the work; visualizing what the piece would look like as "fine art."

I really liked the idea of stripping the covers so you only can see the art.
