Welcome to the Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created 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.  If you want to join us next week, check out next week’s predetermined them, choose a book, compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog

This week’s theme is:

‘‘‘I got no strings to hold me down” – a cover featuring a doll or puppet

Another difficult topic for me.  Unless my mind going blank on this one is the beginning of early onset dementia, then I really don’t think there are many fantasy books out there with covers featurning dolls or puppets.  Let me take a quick look on the web though.

Unfortunately, I’m right:  not many fantasy covers about dolls or puppets.  I did find a few science fiction novels though.  Guess I’ll use the one with an unusual kind of puppet: the human variety!

Yeah, it is a tie.  I like all three of these covers for different reasons.  And in my present mood, I just do not want to only pick one.

So, do you agree with my picks?  Disagree?  Love them all?  Hate them all?  Let us know!

    Wow, tons of cool covers😊 This is tough to pick. I’m sort of leaning towards #4 for some reason.

  4. The central cover of your three choices is the one that calls to me, and probably (only probably, it’s been a LONG time) because it’s the one I read back when… 🙂

    Lol… great minds think alike:)) This is the book that I’ve chosen this week – interestingly, I’ve chosen some different covers altogether – but my favourite of your choices is the middle one, though I also very much like your puppet1 cover.

  6. The big one in the middle on the left is my favorite. Thats some flexibility the guy’s got!

    I’d also go for that one in the middle on the left hand side! I can’t help but think that’s his skin being stretched out for him to hang from…
