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 featuring a car: “Drivin’ along in my automobile.”

For this theme I went for a modern day classic – Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Cover A:

car1

Cover B:

car2

Cover C:

car3

Cover D:

car4

Cover E:

car5

And the winner is… cover B!

This book is absolutely bonkers. A crazy ride through a crazy mind, and I feel the look and style of Cover B really conveys this!

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 I will be looking for a cover featuring an alien: “Aliens-if they exist-are little green men with big eyes and spindly arms…or giant insects or something like a lumpy little creature.”
