If you're looking for a way to dress up your Facebook page and show your love for The Wheel of Time, Tor.com is here to help! Each day this week, they will post a different banner featuring art from the eBooks. Here's their press release:

Prepare for the Last Battle with Wheel of Time Facebook Banners

To prepare for release of A Memory of Light, the final volume of The Wheel of Time, Tor.com will be releasing special Facebook Timeline banners this week! Click the image to see it full size, drag it to your desktop, or Save Image As to post it on your Facebook profile.

We'll also be posting links to the images right here in this article as they are released.

Monday: Mat Cauthon

What, no hat and two ***s ??? Nice coat though... where is the writing on the blade ? or is this a fan art example ?

What, no hat...?


Yes, and two eyes too. It's from the ebook cover art for The Shadow Rising. That's apparently Avendesora in the background, so this is Mat leaving Rhuidean after Rand revives him (thus before he buys Kadere's hat).

Spoiler warning... not everyone might be that far into the series... 99% of us our, few might not be...
Today's Banner 'Moraine Sedai'
The Moiraine banner is, to quote Napoleon Dynamite, "Flippin' Sweet!!"

I apologize if my statement was a spoiler for anybody, but let's not have double standards here. Just look at any of the "Fan Art Friday" articles. If you click on the most recent one, you better not read anything in the article, and don't pay attention to the "fancy scarf" Egwene is wearing either (unless you want a major spoiler). A little while back they did one on Mat too. Recent Rand fanart is just as bad...

You see, I'll give spoiler warning where appropriate, but when it comes to book covers and fan art, IMO saying something like "can you see the scar on his neck?" should not require a spoiler warning.

On the other hand, I will admit that major plot discussions should come with spoiler warnings. For example, look at threads discussing the ebook cover art for Winters Heart. Discussing the image is fine, but saying what Rand is doing with the Chodan Kal access key is a major spoiler, and should probably come with a warning.
It's Perrin today!
Today it's Rand al'Thor

edit: today there r 2 banners with different quotes..

The quotes on Rand's pics are both disappointing. "Duty is heavy as a mountain, death is light as a feather." would be more fitting, or a quote from VOG perhaps. I suppose that is what photoshop is for.
And if you haven't noticed yet, we've got Egwene for today.
Regarding spoilers, since these banners are specifically to celebrate the release of the last book, I'd certainly hope anyone reading this thread would expect it to reveal details of the later books. I mean, if someone is only up to book four, I would not expect them to reading anything that is related to the books after that.
I'm only on book 7 but none of this is spoiler to me...it mentions things but I have no idea what you even talking about....so don't worry too much about it.

That is now how I picture Egewen...but truth is I like this picture of her better than my mental picture. :P Are there gonna be more? I think its been a week so is this it or more to come? See I have an idea of which I might want...but i don't wanna choose it and then see one come out the next day and change my banner again. I want to see them all and then pick the one I want, so I was just wondering.
here is,in my opinion a fitting quote for the dragon reborn:
i forget nothing,aes sedai.
i said six could come,but i count nine.
i said you would be on equal footing with the tower emissaries,
and for bringing nine,you will be.
they are on their knees,aes sedai.kneel!!!!(dumai's wells)
This particular promotion was only for one week. However, since we've already seen several promotions celebrating the AMOL countdown, I'm sure there will be more. We've also still got our audiobook giveaways, and Tor still has a few of the eBook wallpapers to post.
