A couple weeks ago, Trisha wrote about the cover release of Stephen King’s latest, Under the Dome (previewed here on our blog). The cover image was "revealed" in four images over a two-week period.

Well, King fans can rejoice because  the wait is over; Scribner released the complete cover image today:


According to King’s publisher:

“The jacket concept for Under the Dome originated as an ambitious idea from the mind of Stephen King. The artwork is a combination of photographs, illustration, and a 3-D rendering. This is a departure form the direction of King’s most recent, illustrated covers.”

Thoughts on the cover? No doubt Scribner wanted something spectacular to pair with King’s 1,088-page novel.  In May, Abby posted about the plot of Under the Dome: “Featuring more than 100 characters facing a menacing supernatural element in their small Maine town, early reads are comparing Under the Dome to King’s classic epic, The Stand.”
