Download Free Sam Weber Wallpaper for A Memory of Light

We’ve got a special treat for Wheel of Time fans: free downloadable desktop wallpaper from A Memory of Light! The wallpaper features the newly designed snake wheel from the series, crafted by artist Sam Weber (artist on the ebook edition of The Shadow Rising.)

A note for those wondering, this is not the decided-upon cover for the final book. We thought it would be fun to give fans a chance to wear their colors while a decision is being made in regards to the final cover.

Available sizes are:

2560 x 1600 - for 30-inch behemoths
1900 x 1200
1920 x 1080 - 1080p
1600 x 1200 - Non-widescreen monitors
1680 x 1050 - WSXGA
1440 x 900
1280 x 800
1024 x 768 - XGA
1024 x 600 - for netbooks like the Asus EeePC
800 x 600 - SVGA
960 x 640 - iPhone (horizontal)
320 x 480 - iPhone/HVGA (vertical)

Tor.com’s A Memory of Light coverage can be found collected here.

anyone else get a 404 error when trying to access the 1920 x 1200 screen, checked a few other links and they are fine.

Thanks for the heads up Lang. The size was wrong in the file name. Fixed now!

Thanks for posting like a dozen copies of this, but is there a 1600x900 version?

thanks!

(There's a WOT wallpaper you guys put up a few years ago - it's the wheel and serpent in brown on what looks like vellum with a celtic maroon border that i've been using for years now. Would it be possible to have that one in 1600x900, too pretty please? I'm using a stretched version of that now)

Irene @6: Yay! I would definitely like those!

I would like to add a size to the wanted-sizes list: 1366x768 (for many 15-inch notebooks).

(posting from knoppix cause my new build doesn't have Win7 yet)

Bzzz™.

Um.... I'm not sure how that happened. Duplicated my post from 8 hours ago? Oy. Of course, I'm still excited about both this wallpaper and the prospect of the ebook art as wallpapers, but... Oh well.

And what I really posted there was this:

I second the request for the 1366x768 resolution.

Thank you Tor, especially that this is not "North America restricted"

> select 1920 x 1080, the proportions are similar to your requested resolution.

I hate to be a downer, but I could have made that cover myself on Photoshop. I was hoping for more than an icon of the WOT, even a particularly well designed one. Why not something from Jeremy Salaba?

Any chance at a 1366x768?

I know, my resolution is weird.

Everyone wanting other sizes... you can get the size that is just slightly bigger and auto stretch it to fit your screen... the aspect ration won't change too much, should still look fine.

Very awesome, I was ready for a new background anyway. Looking at it makes me happy and sad at the same time; the beginning of the end of an era...

Would it be possible to just get the wheel image on the red background with no text? It always feels wrong to have text as my wallpaper.
