I have no opinion, as I never really take much notice of the covers.

Fairly comprehensive list of additions and artwork for UK and other editions is saved here -

Hello,

I'm new here and I want to know more about the covers.
Since you've mentioned this was a fairly comprehensive list, I was hoping that it will have all the information on one place (or at least most of it :) ), but the link is broken - do you know if there is a backup/mirror site that I can check?
I'm collecting info on the covers and will try to share it in the forum as soon as it makes some sense.. (for me at least).

As far as the actual topic goes - I haven't done a list with my top 10 favourite covers, but since I like Kirby's work, I will try to make one when my covers searches are complete.

Welcome to the site! :)

Unfortunately, Colin Smythe's site is down at the moment. I understand he is working on getting it going again, but there is a list of the covers on Lspace. LSpace.org/covers.

I hope this helps. If not, ask here for specifics and we'll try to do what we can to answer. :)

You can also see a lot of the French covers created by Marc Simonetti on this thread.

Thank you both.
I was aware of the lspace covers section, but it seems incomplete, for example it is missing the cover for the Night Watch.. I haven't reviewed all of the covers though.
My goal is to collect all those editions that have Josh Kirby's covers and the picture is spread on both front and back cover (I think that only Corgi have those?).
During the process I thought that a topic on the matter will be interesting for some fans, and here I am :P
An interesting site is: http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?Josh_Kirby
But I don't want to ruin this thread, so I will make my own :)

I don't believe I've seen that Josh Kirby covers site before. Very interesting. :)

It would be fun to put together a definitive guide to all the Discworld covers from around the world.
