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 something to do with magic: “Bibbity, Bobbity, Boo!”

For this theme I picked The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter,

Cover A:

magic1

Cover B:

magic2

Cover C:

magic3

Cover D:

magic4

Cover E:

magic5
Cover F:

magic6

And the winner is… COVER E!

I love this cover – the rich red colour and the repeating pattern is really pleasing on the eye. The geometric style of the cover is simple but effective.

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 favourite fantasy cover: “Simples.”

One thought on “Friday Face-Off – 24th May 2019

  1. I agree with you this week, the red against the dark background really stands out and the characters floating against the plant tendrils is eye catching
