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 gold: “All that is gold does not glitter”.
This week, the world’s greatest secret agent James Bond makes a reappearance. I’ve chosen the classic novel, Goldfinger.
And the winner is… cover A!
This was a pretty easy pick for me this week. Cover A feels the most like the opening credits of a James Bond film.
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 a boat: “The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea, in a beautiful pea green boat…”
