I can see that happening. Aside from enjoying art for the quality of it, there's something special about turning a page and seeing a well-done piece of art that helps to cement the pictures already formed/forming in your head from reading the prose.
On the other hand, I cite the strong reaction to DR's change in cover art style. The response was swift - and significantly negative - which tells me that people do care about such things. And now that we know the series ought to have been tossed in a dumper, I sometimes wonder whether the awful new covers were an intentional smokescreen, a way of informing us that bigger change was afoot (and we've seen plenty over the course of FOTJ), or perhaps Shelley and Sue thought we'd be so mesmerized by the "spiffy" new cover art we wouldn't realize what a craptastic story arc they'd developed.
Of course, there's always the chance that the DR and LL people are simply clueless on yet another level: that they couldn't tell a good piece of book art (cover or interior) if it was tattooed on their faces. We've already seen what a great job they do of identifying ripping good SW space opera when they read it. This post has been edited by oldjedinurse on Mar 9 2011, 04:48 PM
The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand.
