Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a new weekly meme hosted by Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe.
This week our theme is GATEWAYS, as picked by Lynn of Lynns-books. Or to put it another way, covers which features doors, portals, or any other means for a character to be transported from one place, dimensional, or world to another. And once I read the theme, only one book came to mind: Stephen King’s The Drawing of the Three. But there are so many variations on this books cover design, I couldn’t pick only two, so I’m giving everyone seven of my favorites to take a look at.
AND THE WINNER IS . . .
I have to say it was a tough pick for me because I also really like the ominous doorway and vibrant colors of Cover C, but ultimately, the dungeon-esque doors and creepy sky won out.
You can’t go wrong with any of these covers though. So which one is your pick?
