Friday Face-Off is an idea originally thought up by Books By Proxy which I stole from the fantastic The Tattooed Book Geek. The idea originally was to compare UK and US covers based on an assigned theme each week and choose the winning cover. I will be twisting it slightly: not specifically US and UK covers, just different editions.
This week’s theme is a cover that features a castle: “There was once a princess, who lived in the top of the highest tower.”
I wasn’t too sure where to begin with this one, but I happened upon the book Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones.
And the winner is… COVER B!
This one came down to covers B and D. These two stood out the most for me as I love the steampunk-like style to them, but there was something in cover B that spoke to me. Honourable mention goes to cover A!
What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!
Next week’s theme: 21st October – “There’s no place like home! There’s no place like home! There’s no place like home!” – a cover with a house or abandoned house.
