Bright Weavings: The Worlds of Guy Gavriel Kay – Cover Art for The Lions of Al-Rassan
The Lions of Al-Rassan was first published in 1995. It has since been translated into many languages. Many foreign language editions used the same covers as english language editions; I present here covers that display varied artwork only. Click on a cover to see a larger image.
