Random News: Old Kingdom Trilogy Covers

Hello Sweeties,

So my Facebook feed was randomly filled with various covers of Garth Nix’s books today. He seemed to be doing some cleaning and found all of his foreign language copies of his books, and decided to post pictures of the various covers. As an American now living in the UK I am always surprised at how different book covers can be, sometimes for better and sometimes not. However, it was all the covers of the Old Kingdom books that caught my eye. Some where absolutely gorgeous, and I will share some of them below. Others were a bit mystifying, such as the Chinese cover for Sabriel that had an old man with a long white beard phasing through a wall (that wasn’t in the book, for those who were wondering). I will freely admit that I judge books by their covers when I am looking for new ones. The ones below are books that would have cause me to pick them up, and actually although it is not below, the American cover of Sabriel is what caused me to pick it up the first time!

So enjoy the photos below. If you want to check out more of the covers and some of his other series, you can click here to see Garth Nix’s Twitter page (where the photos originated).

Until next time,


About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
