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 with cover with a mask: ‘…Christine, who have torn off my mask and who therefore can never leave me again!’

This weeks’ book is the classic The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux.

Cover A:

mask1

Cover B:

mask2

Cover C:

mask3

Cover D:

mask4

Cover E:

mask5

Cover F:

mask6

Cover G:

mask7

And the winner is… COVER F!

It most definitely isn’t the classic look that the world is so used to thanks to the stage show of the same name. The expression that shines through is so sad, haunted. There is a definite human connection can be felt even beyond the mask.

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 is a cover with a starry sky: ‘Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars.’

  1. I thought about doing this book this week too, but there were just too many covers to choose from! I like cover A the best! Cover E is awful haha it looks like they poorly photoshopped two images together! I like F but, like you said, it doesn’t have that classic Phantom of the Opera feel to it
