Awesomeness Saturday (Japan Cover Art!)

Obviously, it is Saturday, and I didn't pull my act together well enough to get you guys a cool interview this week.  However, I promise I do have some great ones coming up.  (Stick with me, please?  Thanks!)

This post I have entitled "Awesomeness Saturday" since today I will be sharing some major awesomeness with you that is not in interview form.  ALLEGIANCE published in Japan on April 2nd and I have the cover art with me!

Before I post it, I want to say that the artist, Mr. Akihiro Yamada (the world-famous illustrator!), did an amazing, outstanding job with this cover.  It's so beautiful I don't even know where to start.  I better get on with it and show you what I'm talking about.  Sending love, love, love to my Japanese publisher Wave.


Click to make it even bigger!  My lord, I just love this cover.  Tell me what you think in the comments!

Thanks a bunch,

Cayla

WHATTTT????? OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG. SO. GORGEOUS. How come Allegiance has come out in Japan and not here? :( :( Has the U.S. cover come out yet? I can't wait to see it!!! (I don't see how it could be more gorgeous than that, though. *Hyperventilates*)

I must say, the Japanese Alligence cover is quite stunning. :D The subdued colors are blended well together. Even though the color palette is dark it doesn't make it seem drab, which is a major plus.

I love Japanese art in general, so it's not surprising how much I enjoy the cover art. ^^

Glad you're so excited about, Cayla. :)
