Pern collage WP by bronze-dragonrider Pern collage WP by bronze-dragonrider
I gathered all these pictures which appear on the covers of Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern books into one big wallpaper. I love these pics :love:

*edit* Hmmm, could have sworn I'd given credit to the original artists in my post, so I'd better add it now.

Copyright of Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern, and the original artists: Michael Whelan, Les Edwards, Rowena Morrill, Brom, and Robin Wood.

Shirtless Piemur playing the bongos always makes me laugh.

Rowena's covers were...inventive.

Same here. I think one might be Skies of Pern, though.

Cool, that is just awesome. I can only name 11 of the 16 though as I do not remember what all the covers of the different Dragonriders of Pern books I have read. Though there is only one book I have not read in the series, and that is Dragonquest. Though I have been looking for it.

I only recognize two, then again I only recently got introduced to the Pern books. Who all was able to get Dragonsblood autographed? :D Love how the dragon anatomy is depicted. Wish I had a giant image of all of them D:

Aha! The cover Whelan did for Dragonflight is probably my favorite -- that or Moreta; but Dragonflight is my current background. :)

Awesome! I do love those books and need to make time to read them. Although I do wish she'd focus more on the dragons themselves and less on the people drinking wine all the time XD

Lol, even the one about F'nor and Canth has Lessa on the cover instead.

The last one is from the cover of The People of Pern, by Robin Wood. A collection of portraits of various prominent characters in the Pern series :)

Wow, it must have taken you forever. I am assuming you used the original covers of the books? Because a lot of the later editions of the books have different covers now.

Yeah, it took awhile to get them all sized well enough to fit properly together :)

I'm not sure which editions they were, I just used whichever one was prettiest ;)

Actually, I believe that cover is on the Master Harper of Pern, which is a book that countains the entire Harper Hall Trilogy.

I actually have checks with the Michael Whelan Pern pictures. I LOVE writing checks to people because of it. ^_^

It's interesting to note that in most of the pictures, the center of focus is off to the right, fit for a jacket cover for the book. And even still, they look great as full pictures too! If I were to note you my e-mail, could you send me these pictures? They're a very good quality, and the fact that they don't have text is amazing.

Oh wow. How on earth did you find all the cover images sans text? Would you mind sharing the links (or sending the image files, if you still have them)? They look great all together like that. Nice collage!

Oooh... thank you so much! :) I may take you up on that offer later, if I can't find full-size ones myself. It's very kind of you. I will warn you, though, I've got no idea how to private message on Deviant Art. Don't worry about typos, "note" into "not" is very common, and not embarassing, and I didn't even notice...

I'm in the US right now (I live in Canada) so I can't send them right now, but when I get back in about 3 weeks I can send them then if you haven't found good ones by then :)

To send a note, go to my deviantart page, and to the right it'll say "send a note". Hope that helps!

Bronze-Dragonrider, is there any chance you could post the titles and artists of those? Some are obviously familiar, but I see LOADS I've never seen before. And here I was, complaining yesterday that I couldn't find one of Anne's books with a nice cover.

That very last picture, at the bottom right-hand corner, is that Lessa and F'lar? And the MasterHarper, whose name I can't pinpoint at the moment.

You obviously get different covers for the books where you are (America?) as opposed to Australia, because I only recognise one of these, and I own all the books...
