The World of Velgarth
I did a Google image search for "mercedes lackey" out of boredom, and I found these two gems:
Apparently Companions have fluffy ears, too...
Leave it to Japan to make the best picture of a Tayledras I've ever seen. Not the dyheli, though -- he doesn't look quite right.

Welll, I guess you COULD call the Hawkbrothers bishounen... XD
That's not the German cover, but the one of the Dutch. The German Cover looks just like the American one only with the German title.
Oh! I'd definitely fix that. Thanks for pointing that out.
Yeah, I plan to pick up a copy of her stuff in Japanese. I wish "Magic's Pawn" was out in Japanese. But I have never been able to find it yet...
...oh wow. XDDD
I would love to own the Japanese versions of all of her books.
especially if they have covers that pretty
We SO need to ask for a book that is a collection of all the official artwork ever done for her Velgarth books.
Granted I'm not surprised, Japan is quite known for still having a very thriving illustration community.
Actually, I believe you can get prints of the Jody Lee covers from her website. http://www.jodylee.org/index2.html
Just look around there, and you should be able to find 'em!
...no I am NOT an obsessed fangirl. ;)

I know I own several of her prints.
But I think it would be nice to have like a coffee table artbook, filled with ALL the official velgarth art from around the world. It beats having to buy all the prints, and that's when you can find them and understand the language!
Hahaha, good point! And then we could all carry copies of the pretty artwork around with us. Dern not knowing multiple languages. A part of me is damnably curious as to how some of Misty's "made-up" words translate into other languages.
And just about the only use of this icon I've ever had around people who understand it. XD
I called my dog's vet a trondi'irn the other day for some reason. I've never seen my mom look so confused -- so YAY for using such words in every day life!
Hahha, that is fab!! What's even better...is that if I were to say that around my mum she would actually know what I was talking about. ^_^ Because I have gotten her hooked on Velgarth too! And I'm working on my bro...he's reading the Gryphon books right now.
Wahahahaha, I love the fluffy-earred Companion...that's just special.
As for the bishie Tayledras...of course they're bishonen!! Yay for a lovely pic of them withOUT the icky Larry mohawk/crest/THING.
I liked having art in the book, I hated having HIS art in the book.
Hahha, my thoughts exactly! I rather enjoyed the various pictures inbetween chappies...I was just annoyed at Larry's bizarre obsession with giving almost everyone mullets/mohawks/crests. >__>
