Exactly what it says on the tin...
I do not like the dragon's weird horn in that one. I also think the ruby-eyed idol in the post right above this one is a better encapsulation of the D&D experience too, despite some technical shortcomings.For my money, that D&D cover is the greatest ever. The solid red background, the awesome font, the Elmore art. A beauty and fitting you posted it first.
I thought they were good covers, my only real issue is the logo.Perhaps a controversial choice, but I liked some of the later "faux elaborate ornamentation" covers from 3rd edition D&D. The 3.5 DMG and the Book of Exalted Deeds were my favorites (and that depiction of the BoED as an item of treasure is now canon in-game thanks to its illustration in the 5e DMG)
I have also noticed, surprisingly, that there are few-to-no good quality images of these books on google image search.
Reminded me of this Grognardia post: http://grognardia.blogspot.com/2010/09/awesome-obi-wan.htmlI love that book because I can pick it up and remember what Star Wars was like when I was a kid.
