So things have been a bit hectic to wrap up the Fall 2012/Winter 2013 season here in the Orbit Art department, but expect to see a lot more action from us in the weeks to come. To start off with a bang, these are wallpapers for one of my favorite covers and one of my favorite Orbit series, THE LEGEND OF ELI MONPRESS by Rachel Aaron. In fact, this book is a trade paperback omnibus collecting the first three books of the series (Spirit thief, spirit rebellion, and mind eater) and to celebrate, we asked the incredible artist Sam Weber to impersonate Eli, the world’s most famous thief. If you want to know more behind the scenes of the cover, read this post.
And if you haven’t met Eli yet, then you’re missing out – the best comparison I give is The princess to be married Passing by The Lies of Locke Lamora. And I don’t invoke Dread Pirate Roberts lightly, mind you. Honestly, when the artist calls in wanting the next manuscript early for the next book, it’s a winner.
Stay tuned as we launch more books in the series – complete with a video tour of Sam’s studio.
Here are all the wallpaper download links… if anyone needs a specific size, let us know!
