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 with a steampunk theme: ‘I saw huge buildings rise up faint and fair, and pass like dreams.’

This week’s book is Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding.

Cover A:

steampunk1

Cover B:

steampunk2

Cover C:

steampunk3

Cover D:

steampunk4

Cover E:

steampunk5

Cover F:

steampunk6

Cover G:

steampunk7

Cover H:

steampunk8

And the winner is… COVER A!

Dark and moody with a dank atmosphere, cover A wins it for me. The shadow environment, the lone figure looking out and the hulking airship drifting in really capture the steampunk feel in my view.

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 that features a close door or a door that is ajar: ‘Knock, knock… ‘who’s there?’
