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 that is striped: “And who decided which people wore the striped pyjamas?”

This week I’ve gone with a book I’ve wanted to read for some time now: The Boy in the Stiped Pyjamas by John Boyne.

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

Cover D:

Cover E:

Cover F:

And the winner is… Cover D!

Another win for cover D. This particular cover is haunting to me. Knowing a little about the premise of the book, though I have yet to read it, only adds to this. A dark atmosphere dominates in this cover.

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 that depicts something or someone historic: “The question of whether or not we are alone in the universe… has been answered.”
