The Hobbit has a stacked deck for this question based on having so many translations.

You don’t know the half of it.

I don't know if I have a clear favorite, but these recent Chinese designs are cool: http://www.openculture.com/2015/02/il ... glass-painting-style.html

Hi!
Hope it's okay to join this party! My favorite foreign cover is for the Dutch Hobbit. I love the bright pink background and the way that 2 of the dwarves are (literally?) sizing up Bilbo.
