Friday Face-Off – 16th February 2018

The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This weeks’ theme is a cover that is retro: ‘Groovy baby!’

This week I have gone with a book I haven’t read, but is definitely on my list of must-reads – The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:



And the winner is… COVER B!

I have been meaning to read this book, and those that follow it for some time now. I have been drawn to their covers and this one is the style I have seen the most. It’s colourful and vibrant and gives a nod to classic mystery novels.

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 weeks’ theme is a book featuring a staircase: ‘There are too many steps in this castle, and it seems to me they add a few every night, just to vex me.’

  1. For me it would have to be cover A. Cover B looks almost Marvel comic style – I wouldn’t pick it up in a bookshop.

  2. I agree with you. I don’t mind D – it’s odd and quirky. It’s C I really don’t like – it looks like something a kid mocked up for their GCSE in design and technology lol! A’s okay, but B definitely wins it for me.
