Japanese publishers for the Inheritance Trilogy have released Eldest in two volumes, due to its enormous size. Instead of having the same cover for both volumes, the Japanese publisher commissioned John Jude Palencar to create a painting of Glaedr the dragon, to be used on the second volume. You can see the book cover here, and a scan of the painting without the text here.
You all know what a new book cover means — a new layout option! Joelle, our Graphic Guru, has created a Glaedr layout which can now be selected by choosing from the layout options on the right under the header, or by clicking here. Enjoy!
