With each eBook, Tor is including brand new artwork for the "cover". A different artist has been selected for each one, giving the art team at Tor a chance to provide us fans with a variety of styles.
This month, the artwork is by Jason Chan. The ebook will be released on July 22.
As with the previous covers that were released for the ebooks, Tor Art Director Irene Gallo has done a write up about the process behind creating this image. Be sure to check out the full article. Here's an excerpt:
When it came to scenes to depict, it seemed natural to revisit Moiriane and Lan. New Spring is their story before Rand¹s begins. Jason chose to express a quiet and contemplative moment. The early spring blossoms suggest changes about to occur, yet it is still cold. It is a heavy moment. The weight of their mission is just starting to take over youthful abandon.
Wheel of Time eBook Tor Books released each one of the Wheel of Time novels as ebooks. Each has new cover art, specially commissioned for the eBook format. Each featured a different artist.
