Book Cover Throwback: A Wizard of Earthsea

This week’s Book Cover Throwback: A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. LeGuin.

A Wizard of EarthseaWhat I Love about This Cover: I had an entire box set of these in this style. They were simplistic by design, yet intricate and detailed. I loved that!

What I Don’t Love about This Cover: I wish the colors were less washed-out and carried a bluer hue. They could have kept the design’s simplicity, yet created something eye catching.

About the author

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.
