Cover Print – The Blade Itself by Tommy Arnold

Cover Print – The Blade Itself by Tommy Arnold
Late 2023 we delivered our first published book, The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie which was lovingly illustrated by the amazing Tommy Arnold
One of the most striking things about this edition was the incredible dustjacket art by Tommy, he was able to capture the raw unhinged nature of Logan Ninefingers as he morphs into the “Bloody Nine“. Not only that but Tommy included a brilliant rendition of Ferro Maljinn to complete the bold and gritty cover image.
The Blade Itself is the first book of the much-lauded “First Law” trilogy by Joe Abercrombie and our intention is release a print of each cover image to the general public. Our aim is to ensure the three covers follow on nicely from each other, and Tommy has really set the tone with Book 1.
