Happy Mail: Discworld Novels 6-10

I had to order books for school a while back. I don’t know how things work where you are, but here in Sweden student literature is pricy. Then, (because despite what the teacher says they’re not available at your local library) you buy the damn sixty dollar book that you’ve been told is vital and compulsory only to find out that out of those nine-hundred pages they want you to read twelve. It’s depressing.

As I was already logged in to my bookstore account and because I was depressed I felt I deserved a little pick-me-up. That pick-me-up came in the form of an additional five titles in the Discworld Library Edition. I love the look of these books.

Wyrd Sisters

There’s not a lot of foil details on this cover. I couldn’t get a picture that showed it at it’s best, but it’s the red flames under the kettle. Also, the green is a little too washed out and yellow in the shot, is more of a lime green.

My books: Wyrd Sisters
“When shall we three meet again?” “Well, I can do next Tuesday?”

Pyramids

One of my favorite Discworld novels so far, but we’ll get to that when I review it. On this cover, the moon and details on the pyramid are in a silver foil.

My books: Pyramids
The kingdom of Dejalibeybi has a pyramid problem.

Guards, Guards

Super funny and absolutely gorgeous cover. The entire dragon is in a silver foil, and as on most of these books, the cover is repeated at the back as well.

My Books: Guards! Guards!
This is where the dragons went. They lie… not dead, not asleep, but… dormant.

Eric

Short but sweet with gold foil accents on The Luggage and the encircled symbols. Here you can see one of the significant drawbacks with this edition; the cover is very soft, so it gets damaged easily. Especially along the top and bottom of the spine and around the corners. The damage here is from the shipping, if you have the opportunity buy these in an actual bookshop I suggest you do.

Eric is the Discworld’s only demonology hacker. Pity he’s not very good at it.

Moving Pictures

Tackling this one at the moment, so far I think it’s one of the weaker novels in the series. On this cover, the statue in the middle has gold/bronze accents.

My Books: Moving Pictures
Action! Adventure! Romance! With a thousand elephants!

What do you think of the covers, do you have a favorite?
