The AD&D 2nd Edition Premium Covers

So the AD&D 2E reprints will have these covers. Very nice, I like this look a lot and it makes better use of the famously atrocious art in the revised editions (still not as good as using the pics from the original first printing covers, but a nice leatherette green covering it all up is still a better way to go!


  1. I like these. I wasn't going to get these, but they look really nice.

    Plus I never owned the revised 2nd ed books. They cam eout when I was taking a break from D&D and didn't bother to pick them up.

    1. The revised books had errata incorporated and were very functional in layout, but lacked some of the charm of the first printings. I actually liked the style, even if it wasn't as good as the first prints. But it wasn't for everyone, based on the comments over at The art wasn't was by the one artist TSR had at the time who did a lot of the Player's Option illustrations, which had a sort of "realistic" look, very unlike the 3.0 art and on.
