Lighttheart
26. vitiosus
I love the Shadow Rising one the best I think, because I think it is an excelent one of Mat. Although, a close second would be Knife of Dreams because I love that artists work.

Lighttheart
31. Cyphon88
I'm quite glad you used this as one of the Sosltice pieces, I'd missed the orginial artwork series (as a newcomer to tor.com) and I always find people's translations from text to the mind's eye fascinating. I just spent twenty minutes 'working' looking at all the artwork articles. Great stuff all of them.

The Gathering Storm would make an awesome poster (although honestly all of them would, I'm just biases towards dragons).
Lighttheart
59. DubsAA
Could you have made this any more difficult? Next year how about one of each a day?

As much as I love Perrin, or the colors of PoD, my choice is definitely The Shadow Rising and Matrim.
Happy Holidays!

Lord of Chaos would be cool.

Lighttheart
108. Maren T
Oooooh, WoT prints! :D Hard to choose, though. I'm torn between The Gathering Storm, The Shadow Rising, A Crown of Swords, and Crossroads of Twilight.

I think I'll say The Gathering Storm, because it is the one that looks most fantasy. It introduces me to new people, in a way. But I would be happy with any of the others I mentioned, as well.

112. PhrozenFear
Nope, love the thought of them all, but this one is my favourite. Gotta have me Fires of Heaven - I miss Moiraine, and think she's awesome !

Winter's Heart or Knife of Dreams - so hard to decide. Winter's Heart, I think. The closeups look even better than the whole picture - I can't imagine how awesome an actual print would be.
Lighttheart
122. Darren A. Jones
The Fires of Heaven was my favorite cover, mostly because I love that shade of blue.

143. Lou Bones
Waiting for the ebook art to come out one by one since last year, almost as anxiously as waiting for the book itself, has been really enjoyable thank you. Great to see such talent portraying WoT in their own way.
For me I would have to say my favourite cover is Crossroads of Twilight and would be a very special thing to own.

Oh please please please sell these as prints!

I would buy all of them like *that* (that being possibly slowly, over the course of a year, since I'm a poor Student) but seriously, I would save to buy all of them - they are amazing! :)

I'm completely torn between the Fires of Heaven (I adore Moiraine), and Crossroads of Twilight because of the subtle greys...

I think it has to be Crossroads of Twilight.

(Seriously though - please sell me these things! :P)

The Fires of Heaven.

Yay, Moiraine!

So many fantastic covers... I'll have to go with Knife of Dreams.
Lighttheart
291. Thuyho
It's so hard to choose just one, since they'd all look fantastic in print.

I think I'd go for The Fires of Heaven (...and then The Gathering Storm, The Dragon Reborn, and The Shadow Rising. Heh, even I can barely narrow it down.) So exciting!
Lighttheart
294. mkd127
Tough call, but I think I'd like Gathering Storm best. Choose me!
David Thomson
296. ZetaStriker
The cover art for each of these novels is all gorgeous, and I would love a large size print to proudly hang the wall of my new apartment. And, happily enough, the above-pictured Fires of Heaven cover is exactly the one I'd choose!
Lighttheart
297. clinton_blue
Aargh. Forced to choose between Moiraine and Nynaeve. THAT scene with Lanfear or when Nynaeve finally surrenders. It's like Sophie's Choice. On balance, I guess A Crown of Swords.
Lighttheart
298. Dianeli
The Shadow Rising or the Gathering Storm, please!
Lighttheart
301. B. Durbin
The Fires of Heaven. But ooh, what a difficult choice.

Of course, my FAVORITE choice would be for those covers to be on the print versions, not just the e-books. They're gorgeous.
Nathanael
302. gnatnate
Lord of Chaos would be great, though its tough to pick just one!
Lighttheart
304. Akallabeth
Oww ! I'd love The Dragon Reborn one !

If only I could be as lucky as Mat... I think I can almost hear dices rolling in my head....
My choice is Winter's heart!
Tim FItches
306. El Fitcho
I don't know if this is in time (no idea of the time difference from the UK!) but if it is, then please count me in for the Knife of Dreams cover.
Thanks Tor!
