Wheel of Time Book Covers in Dutch

Some time ago I posted images of the covers to all the Wheel of Time ebooks. Here are the covers of the Dutch print versions.

I think they are well done, and I know some people like them a lot . . . but personally, I’m not fond of them. They’re definitely atmospheric, but they are too generic for my taste. I wouldn’t even guess they were fantasy novels if I didn’t already know.

What do you think? Better or worse than the English ebook covers?

    I like these covers. I like them a lot.

    The serpent-ring graphic is pretty snazzy. There’s something to be said for consistency–once you’ve seen one of them, you won’t have to guess which series any of these covers belongs to. On the other hand, you might have a hard time telling books within the series apart.

    They don’t exactly scream “fantasy series,” but there are some good cues — the map-like background in one, the lightning in another, the shield boss background, etc. — but historical fiction and romance use some of the same elements, too.
