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 the literary universe.
This week’s theme is: “ All that is gold does not glitter. A cover which features gold!”
I thought long and hard about this topic. I wanted to reveal an unexpected cover, but I kept coming back to the first book which came to mind. And, finally, I decided to stop fighting the feeling and just go with it already.
THE HOBBIT by J.R.R. TOLKIEN
AND THE WINNER IS . . .
This really wasn’t a hard decision for me, because I have always loved Cover A. It is a personal favorite of mine; a classic fantasy covers which I feel perfectly captures the essence of Tolkien’s story.
Which would you choose? Why?
And, why not join in next week with your own selections.
