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 city: “That great condensor of moral chaos, The City.”
For this theme I have selected Philip Reeve’s Mortal Engines.
And the winner is… COVER D!
I love the colours in this cover, and the steampunk vibes that run through this cover. It draws me in, and makes me want to read the book all the more!
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 key: “Where there is a Key, there is yet hope.”
