Polish edition of the Tapestry. The covers for books 2 and 3 are John Howe’s from the UK paperback editions (for larger images of these covers see the UK edition). Perhaps that’s in reaction to the, er, interesting cover of The Summer Tree (which -can- be clicked on for a larger image). The only redhead in Fionavar is Jaelle – one can only imagine the righteous fury she would display if she saw this display!

israelfionavar1_s

 

 

 

 

Israeli edition of The Summer Tree (published Feb 2000). This is the John Howe UK cover picture, but I added it to the gallery for the Hebrew script. Note that Hebrew is read from right to left, which also explains the full wrap cover with the front cover on the left, not the right. Pub: Opus Press
