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 with drink: “Ho ho ho! To the bottle I go”.
For this week’s cover I have gone with Black Coffee.
And the winner is… COVER A!
Cover A really spoke to me. I liked the old style look about this one, and the fact that it includes the distinctive character of Hercule Poirot. That said, covers G and H were also close runners.
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!
That’s it for 2016. I am working on pulling together the themes for 2017, so hopefully Friday Face-Offs will be back in the New Year.
