A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

New Covers for The Eye of the World and New Spring

  • Tor releases three new trade paperback covers; two for The Eye of the World and one New Spring.


This year, The Eye of the World celebrated its 30th anniversary.  To commemorate this special occasion Tor Books is releasing a new hardcover and paperback versions of The Eye of the World as well as a new paperback cover for New Spring.

The 30th anniversary The Eye of the World hardcover will be published October 6th, 2020.  This amazing cover has a metallic jacket.  It will include a new introduction written by Brandon Sanderson.  The Eye of the World’s official birthday was January 15th, 1990, and the Wheel of Time Community Show celebrated this milestone earlier this year.

The artwork will feature the original image of Moiraine, Lan, and Rand drawn by Darrell K. Sweet, but in a format similar to the other trade paperbacks in the series. The publication date for this version will be August 4th, 2020.

The new paperback version is the first time New Spring will be released in the trade paperback size. The cover will feature artwork by Jason Chan, showing the moment Moiraine bonds Lan as her warder.  The publication date will be August 18th, 2020.


Fans have wanted New Spring in trade paperback for some time.  With this addition, our trade paperback bookshelves will be complete!

 

You can watch Ebony go over the details in the latest episode of the Wheel of Time Community Show! And as always, check out our Books section for more info on each book. 

 

 

So, are you as anxious as I am to get the metallic cover?  Let us know in the comments.

Any idea when we'll be able to pre-order? I don't see it on Amazon. Definitely anxious for the new cover and particularly the intro by B. Sanderson.

It varies how soon books are available for pre-order, but the metallic cover edition will be published in October, so maybe by the end of the summer. We’ll give an announcement when the pre-order is available!

I've always thought the Eye of the World cover was grossly out of perspective. The rendering of Moraine & Lan make Moraine look like she's 4 feet tall riding a miniature horse. Either that or Lan is 10 feet tall and his horse is 25 hands or more (that translates to over 8 feet at the shoulder)! Oh, and why is Moraine riding side saddle? I don't think I ever read anywhere in the books that she didn't ride astraddle.

I think the covers were always done as a loose interpretation of what's actually going on (like there's more people in the party of Two Rivers folk than there really were traveling with Moiraine).  

But for me, this cover has always been amazingly cool!  Perhaps the size (or shortness) of Moiraine is emphasized, but that doesn't bother me.  Or maybe Mandarb is 25 hands?
