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:
‘‘When she was a child, the witch locked her away in a tower that had neither doors nor stairs.” – a cover featuring a Tower
Finally! A topic which is tailor made for a fantasy reader like me. I mean, there are towers, towers everywhere in fantasy — even if the “Tower” is only in the title, baby. My pick this week being J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Two Towers!
AND THE WINNER IS . . .
Another tie. I probably like the cover on the left the best, but I also find the other two intriguing in their own ways.
So, do you agree with my picks? Disagree? Love them all? Hate them all? Let us know!
