Some days a new piece of fantasy art comes in that is so lush, so lovely, so chock full of detail that we just have to look, and look, and look. We get a wistful, faraway look in our eyes, and occasionally a small gobbet of happy drool will emerge from our admiring mouths.

Such is the case here, a wonderful illustration by Angelo Rinaldi for David Tallerman‘s upcoming Easie Damasco novel, Crown Thief (October 2012). Look upon its manifold wonders and marvel. Also, click to get a better look at that insane detail. Then click again for even more.

Now if you’ll excuse, we need to go and make ourselves presentable again.

  1. Ooh, that is nice! So many pretties to show off…

  2. Great looking cover. I wonder who the mysterious fella in the background is.

  3. I love this. It reminds me of that bit in the Fellowship of the Ring when they’re half-way up a mountain and in danger of falling off the edge.
