Friday Face-Off – 11th May 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 featuring a dinosaur: ‘God creates dinosaurs, God destroys dinosaurs. God creates Man, man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs.’

This week I picked the only book I could for this theme: Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


Cover F:


Cover G:


Cover H:


Cover I:


And the winner is… COVER F!

I loved the design here. It is not the obvious design associated with the franchise-the iconic dinosaur skeleton. It reminded me of the scene in the film when John Hammond witnesses the hatching of a dinosaur. Special mention however has to go to cover A, the classic logo made so famous by the 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 weeks’ theme is a book cover featuring a gravestone: ‘Let’s talk of graves, of worms, and epitaphs.’

    1. I know in the film all the trouble started due to a tropical storm and there was a lot of lightning on screen so I would imagine that is the reference.

      If not, maybe it was used to set an ominous mood…
