I think we're just used to Kirby - for many his covers are a part of the Discworld and anything looks bland compared to them.

But I have to agree with stripy_tie. The black covers have are just as charming, especially in regards to the Death books. The fact I can imagine them on a shel somewhere in Death's domain says enough. :D I'd love to have those five (Mort - Thief of Time).

I'm also a big fan of the new Tiffany covers. I love seeing Tiffany with the different witches, the 4 colours/elements, the little details... Better than the originals.

Anyway, I like all the UK covers. US on the other hand... blergh. :P

Not a fan of the US covers at all. but oddly they stuck with the Kidby cover this time. :D

Yeah, amazon had the image for the Thud black cover with night watch written on it (i'm still baffled as to how this happened). I reported the mistake and they removed the image.

What makes it even stranger is that the original image they had for the listing was actually correct.

Black covers (Updated)

Postby winther » Mon Oct 31, 2011 5:47 pm

Just wanted to let you all know that I got my copy of Night Watch in the post today. It seems it was delayed with 14 days or so from the rest of the rest (eg monstrous regiment, unseen academicals etc).

I now have all the black cover editions, including the 4 tiffany aching books, the maurice book, and good omens. YAY!!!

Nation isn't a Discworld book and I don't think it's available as a black cover. :?

I have it a black cover. Prod Waterstones or go on thier on line shop.* I say Waterstones cos that's where rI got mine from. Amazon has it too!

Tony is right, it's not a discworld book, but the black cover does look good along side them!


* There are other book shops who would do this.

You have the monstrous regiment black cover? from where? that's one of the few i haven't been able to locate and i thought it hadn't been printed yet.

I know Maurice was out there briefly but amazon stopped selling it almost immediately.

The only other currently not available (excluding Eric which i doubt we'll ever see) seems to be Going Postal, i think it has something to do with the movie edition, they probably don't want to be selling 3 editions of the same book at the same time.
