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 brown. This one was a tough one, so I twisted it a bit. Rather than the cover being brown, the cover comes from a book written by Brown. Dan Brown, specifically, and his novel Inferno.

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

Cover D:

brown4

Cover E:

And the winner is… COVER B!

Maybe Dan Brown was a controversial shout. I know many people hate his work, but I am personally a big fan. And I also love Florence as a city, so this was a great read for me. A simple cover with that icon of Florentine architecture, Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore with the imposing visage of Dante Alighieri’s death mask. A great 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 of my choosing.

    1. I love his work. But then I know a lot of people who cannot abide the Harry Potter series, and I really enjoy those books too!
