Judging A Book

Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Rithmatist

This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!) I created this feature to showcase and admire the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t make so many wonderful editions!

Hi, I’ve read one book by Sanderson and loved it so now I’m just hoarding his stuff. The Rithmatist has illustrations by Ben McSweeny and cover art by Cristopher Gibbs, andit was published in 2013 by Tor, ISBN: 9780765338440.

  1. Oh, I loved this book so much. It was my first Sanderson 🙂 And I waited so eagerly for the next one in the series. And waited. And waited. It was moved to a ‘secondary project’ on his blog several years ago and he’s been working on so many other projects I don’t know if it will ever come back. I think he has a lot of fans eager to find out what happens next though, so I never give up hope…


    1. Oh geeze! That’s good to know though. I had no idea that it was part of an unfinished series. At least I know that going in. My first and only Sanderson so far has been Warbreaker. Really loved that. Totally wouldn’t mind another book in that universe.


      1. Most of Sanderson’s books are actually linked in some way (through a sort of ‘hidden’ overarching universe called the Cosmere). The Mistborn trilogy is my fave after Rithmatist 😀😀
