I don't very often do this, but when I saw this (courtesy of James at Speculative Horizons http://speculativehorizons.blogspot.com/2010/05/exclusive-look-at-uk-artwork-for.html) I just had to share.
The UK cover for Scott Lynch's long awaited 3rd volume of his Gentleman Bastards series, Republic of Thieves.
It's a departure in style for the series, the covers for The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies focussed more on the surrounds than individuals. I have to admit that I love this cover. It makes me want the book that much more, it's scheduled for a northern hemisphere Spring 2011 release, which means anywhere from March to May. Most sources believe it will be March.
There's also discussion about the cover over at: http://www.camorr.com/content/republic-thieves-uk-coverart. Or you can make a comment here if you like.
