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 ghost or spectre: ‘There’s more of gravy than of grave about you.’

This week’s book is The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde.

Cover A:

ghost1

Cover B:

ghost2

Cover C:

ghost3

Cover D:

ghost4

Cover E:

ghost5

Cover F:

ghost6

And the winner is… COVER F!

I found the decision much tougher this week. Cover E was a close runner for me, but what held me back from choosing that one was it was more comic bookesque in style. While cover F is very much cartoonish and childish, something about it intrigues me and draws me in.

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 icicles or snow: ‘In winter with warm tears I’ll melt the snow.’

  1. Actually this was a quite straightforward pick for me as Cover F stood out immediately. I think it’s the most attractive but also has the right element of humour to reflect Wilde’s story. Some of the others seem to me to look rather too ghoulish.
