The Prodigal Mage - Voyager cover

Wheeee! And now I can share with you the lovely Greg Bridges cover for the Australian edition of The Prodigal Mage. It's so cool to see the different interpretations by various artists/designers.

This is the paperback edition that's coming out in Australia/New Zealand in October.

Voyager cover
That is an exquisite cover. I'm sorry we won't get the same one in the U.S. Wilson is just adorable, btw.

Re: Voyager cover
Isn't it? I'm so lucky. And yeah, Wilson's a boy. Will be properly in touch soon. As soon as I stop coughing. Sigh.

You know, I've always wondered something about fantasy book covers. They all, basically to a one, consist of paintings. They're well done paintings, I grant, but it's more or less 100% examples of the painterly art. I understand why: it's the easiest way to portray fantasy settings.

My question is this (and, being in the biz, maybe you know the answer): how much do those things cost?

I mean, do publishing houses have dungeons full of starving artists, slapping paint on canvases in exchange for bowls of roughly-chopped dog meat? Or is there an illuminati-like cabal of secretive fantasy book cover artists out there, whose phone numbers are guarded by the Vatican Swiss Guard and only given out to Publishers of Repute, who live handsomely off the cover or two they paint every year?

And however it's done, is it true that the author ends up paying for that out of his/her royalties?

Honestly, I couldn't tell you prices. I'm not privy to the costings of cover art. All I can tell you is that I don't pay -- it's part of the publisher's production budget.

Publishers have people on their books who work with cover art -- it's a specialised form of illustration and the pool isn't huge.
