FRIDAY FACE OFF MAY 11, 2018

friday-face-off

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:

“Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth’ – a cover featuring a dinosaur/s

Love dinosaurs.  Loads of dino stories our there, so I can’t imagine this will be very difficult.  Let’s see what I can dig up!

AND THE WINNER IS . . .

Yeah, it is a tie this week.  Love the iconic Jurassic Park logo.  Adore the classic red cover on the left because it was the book I purchased so many years ago when I first discovered this classic.  The ominous gate on the right is damn great to me.  But, honestly, it is the dinosaur which makes them all great!

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

  3. I do like that red Jurassic Park cover, but I’ll admit my favorite was the simple white one with the skeletal T-Rex. Probably because that’s the one I had and read until it fell apart. So, I’ll admit to being biased here. The one with the gate is pretty cool though.

    Is it just me or do a few of them look like lazy Photoshop jobs?

  9. Oh man, the 1995 Jurrasic Park frenzy (lol at Toronto Raptors and the futile attempts to change the name). I loved the hologram cover of Raptor Red (Bantam, 1996), the mass market paperback. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raptor_Red#/media/File:Raptor-red.jpg
