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:
‘‘A Hand without a hand? A bad jape, sister.’ – a cover featuring a hand/hands“
Talk about a difficult theme. I searched and searched for hands everywhere stinking where. I saw lots of them, but never just them alone. Finally, I settled on a book cover with a strong focus on hands, which I also just happened to like.
Hope you enjoy!
AND THE WINNER IS . . .
Yeah, it is a tie this week. Different types of covers which both caught my eye. If I was forced to pick I would go with the cover on the right, because of the fire and the sense of barely contained violence about to erupt. But, hey, I do really think the left cover is damn clever as well. Hence the tie.
So, do you agree with my picks? Disagree? Love them all? Hate them all? Let us know!
