Michael Whelan had the opportunity to sit down for a remote video interview with both Brandon Sanderson and Isaac Stewart to talk about RHYTHM OF WAR. Michael offered a sneak peak of some preliminary art created for the new cover. While this was filmed for the virtual book release, it’s available now for everyone to watch on Brandon’s YouTube channel.
And if you haven’t made it to the end of the conversation yet, Brandon wanted to let you know that prints of the cover art are now available in our shop!
We’ve seen a steady flow of questions regarding Michael’s latest cover illustrations so I thought I’d provide an update for the upcoming holiday season.
We were intending to offer prints of both FAHRENHEIT 451 and long time fan-favorite DESCENT (cover for The Martian Chronicles) for Ray Bradbury’s centennial in August, but this year has been challenging in so many ways. We will finally release these prints during the holidays (likely with our Cyber Monday email right after Thanksgiving).
We will be offering prints of RHYTHM OF WAR with the same size options as the others in the Stormlight series (18×24 and 24×36). The timing will coincide with the release of the book so expect the prints to drop as the book lays down on November 17.
The Stormlight Archive is something special. We see fan excitement spill over with every cover reveal. That’s why we’re continuing the tradition of offering high resolution desktop wallpaper of the covers
When a fan wrote in asking why TOR hadn’t done a digital wallpaper for OATHBRINGER as they had for THE WAY OF KINGS and WORDS OF RADIANCE, I knew I had a project on my hands.
