Friday Face-Off – 24th August 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 with a title featuring the word legend: ‘To be a legend, you’ve either got to be dead, or excessively old!’

This week I have gone with The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


Cover F:


Cover G:


Cover H:


And the winner is… COVER H!

This particular cover is dark, moody and atmospheric. I love the silhouette of the legendary headless horseman and the enormous moon in the background.

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 goblins or dwarves: ‘Come buy our orchard fruits, Come buy, come buy.’
