Favorite picture of the booklet

#1 Post by Orodaran » 06 Aug 2010 21:34

After the quite horrible and "Your computer has not installed the font you're viewing so I'll just use the default one" font of the A Twist in the Myth booklet, Blind Guardian gifted us with what is, BY FAR, the best booklet and package of their carrer 8)

So, since each lyrics has a quite pretty picture to come along with it, vote for your favorite one!!!! :D (I allowed 2 votes for user)
"There's a time when a man needs to fight and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny's lost, the ship has sailed and that only a fool will continue. The truth is I've always been a fool"

A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer

Sacred Worlds is just a bit TOO epic imho.
I'm going with AVitD and WoT. 8)

Does anyone know the name of the font by the way? Or is it exclusive?

I voted for Tanelorn -very aggressive- and Valkyries. They are all great either way. But I still find the cover mediocre.

Yeah, why I don't find the cover art horrible, I think there are many booklet pictures that are better than it...

Like the color Contrast for Control the Divine, so I went with that :D

Tanelorn - because of the nice dynamics in the picture and the guy just looks cool (as somebody said before, the guy in Sacred is just TOO epic)
Road of no release - kinda disturbing and fitting to the tragic tune

Me too :shock: Unbelievable, I read lyrics in booklet several times and noticed the fox only now :lol:

The least loved song of the album has by far the best picture? :? Strange... What is in it that attracts so many people?
Just keep in mind, this world is sacred.
