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 week’s theme is a cover featuring a hand or hands: ‘A Hand without a hand? A bad jape, sister.’

This week I picked The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black.

Cover A:

hands1

Cover B:

hands2

Cover C:

hands3

Cover D:

hands4

Cover E:

hands5

Cover F:

hands6

And the winner is… COVER A!

I found cover A intriguing. A simple and effective design, I also like the way the title of the book appears almost as if it has been tattooed on to the wrist of the limb.

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 cover featuring a dinosaur: ‘God creates dinosaurs, God destroys dinosaurs. God creates Man, man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs.’ ‘Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth.’
