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 cover theme is a cover featuring a shop or market: “who will buy this wonderful morning.”

This week I return to one of my very favourite authors, Stephen King with a rare book of his that I haven’t read, Needful Things.

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

Cover D:

shop4

Cover E:

shop5

Cover F:

shop6

Cover G:

shop7

Cover H:

shop8

And the winner is… IT’S A DRAW!

For the second week running we have ourselves a draw here on Books and Beyond Reviews! Covers B and C share the spoils for me this week. The twilight street scene, the shop front and the shadow of the store owner spilling onto the pavement in cover B are really eye catching. With Cover C I love the bruised, moody sky, the store sign and the crow that features in a lot of King covers also caught my attention. Two designs that I really love, and a book I really want to read!

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 week’s theme is a cover featuring fish or other sea creatures: “Two little fishes and a momma fishy too.”
