There also is a depiction of a Renaissance man writing with a curtain as the background.

Thanks for posting these - I know I asked at some point. It sounds like there are more on the K2. But the fancy B is missing! I wish we could have all of the screensavers - K1 and K2!

What I'd like to see is the use of the Cover for the book you are reading as a screensaver.

The man with the curtain is Erasmus; not sure what you mean by Durer & then "Albertus" -- one of the images is an engraving by Durer of Albert of Brandenburg, who inadvertently helped start the Reformation.

My husband's Kindle arrived at my office, so I opened it there & charged it up -- my colleagues & I thought at first that guessing who was in the screensaver images was a game -- but then, we noticed that most of the writers were labeled. Not sure why Amazon assumes they need to tell us who Mark Twain is but we'll immediately recognize Erasmus, & I have no idea why Albert of Brandenburg deserves to be thrown in with the writers anyway, but we did have a bit of fun.

I thought of that idea as well, but then I reconsidered: Do I really want folks seeing the cover of Naughty Nurses 3: Nude at Night?

The "cathedral floorplan" is actually Villa La Rotonda, a villa just outside Vicenza, Italy, designed by Andrea Palladio, a famous Venetian architect from the 1500s. It is a beautiful building.

I wonder if newer recent Kindles have some additional images.

My own Kindle (purchased April 2009) has the same screensavers listed by SirBruce, above (as far as I can see). But my wife's model (purchased earlier this year) also has the following:

A montage of tropical fish
Ralph Ellison
Kindle definition page showing a person under a tree rather than the falling letters.

All the others on her model seem to be the same.

Anyone else got these additional images?

Yep, mine has them. (purchased December 2009), firmware = 2.3.3
You could check if you have an other firmware than your wife.
