Me either, especially when they don't look like my mental picture,
which they invariably never do, especially in this case.

The stained glass windows are very nice, and I liked the way the
first two joined together to make a bigger picture; I was looking
forward to the third and fourth books, and was very disappointed
when the spines did not continue to build up but were duplicates
of the second. Of course, Calde had the subtitle "Volume Two of the
Book of the Long Sun", so I suppose it's only fair that it should
have the same cover as Lake!

Hello, by the way.
