Italian TMI covers  
This week is my week of posting pictures, it seems!

So my Italian publisher did a complete repackage of all the Mortal Instruments books for their paperback line. They're dark and romantic and I truly love them. (Just don't ask me who the people making out on the cover of City of Ashes are. I am sure it's supposed to be Jace and Clary, so you just have to let the hair color go. Unless it's Simon and Isabelle? O_O And yes, the guy on the cover of City of Glass is Jace. Bones, too, with the snazzy hood.)

Your books appear to be blessed with the best covers ever, in all editions. U.S. City of Ashes is still my favorite, though.

Nice icon!

I don't sadly have any info about Romania. I might know more after March (when the international rights fair for children's books happens.)

Yay! Glad you like.

Got "Boneshaker" for several people's X-mas presents, has been a big hit all around...

Honestly? Best. Covers. Ever. Classy, mysterious, strong. Shrieking "QUALITY!" from the stacktops.

I think they capture part of the series in a way that most covers don't do for books. Lovely! <33

*Faints* THAT IS SO TOTALLY AWESOME!! I wish they had the Italian covers in Australia! The last one is the best, but they are all so good!!!!!!!!!

How much do I love these? BIG much. Those stylized Marks look like a Lucio Fontana painting. (OK, I know: pointless obscure modern art ref, but still: http://monarch.gsu.edu/jcrampton/politics/cover.html.)

The tag on City of Glass is fabulous. *Whispery voiceover voice(: In a New York where vampires can tolerate sunlight, love may be a mortal sin!

Gorgeous. <3

Jace looks 25, and Clary looks 25, but Luke and Valentine look great. And I'm just excited there's going to be a graphic novel, even if Jace is un Jace-like. :D It's good enough for me.

Wow, I love these covers! :O They're amazing! :D

Oh, crap, I'm crying again
I've recently realized something, Cassie and I had to ask. Alec and Magnus... Something's standing in the way of their happiness. One of them will wither and die and the other one will never age, will keep on living for ever and ever. And what when Alec is like forty and Magnus still look nineteen? That never end well. n-e-v-e-r. And Magnus would have to watch Alec die and bury him. So I had to ask. Is that why Magnus was after the Book of the White? Was he looking for an immortality spell so he and Alec could live on forever together? After all, according to the warlock, there is lots of pretty powerful spells in that book. Just tell me that their love relationship isn't doomed. Just tell me something, anything, please...

Re: Oh, crap, I'm crying again
It is the human condition to age and die. Clary and Jace's love story will also end in death, and barring some strange coincidence, one will die before the other and bury the other. I suppose the question is: is love that is limited by mortality worth anything? Which is the question that Alec and Magnus will be dealing with in CoFA.

loving the covers!

I think the one that we have here in the states is way better because they have their marking on them. The scratches is not doing it for me.
Allysonreallyally on January 30th, 2010 07:07 pm (UTC)
These are HAWT. I am a bit confused by the scratches, though. I think they could have done a better job photoshopping them in.

They're still sexy covers, though. XD

H-O-T! This covers are absolutely gorgeous (and sexy)
I can't wait until 10th February when "City of bones" will be out in my country. On the site of IBIS press I found the cover / http://www.ibis-press.eu/images/MI-1a-bg.jpg / and I'm so happy.

Thanks for the wonderful books! :*
