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 is a free pick – a chance to choose a personal favourite book. For this I have gone with the book that started it all – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling.

Cover A:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone1

Cover B:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone2

Cover C:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone3

Cover D:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone4

Cover E:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone5

Cover F:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone6

Cover G:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone7

Cover H:

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone8

 

And the winner is… IT’S A DRAW!

Covers F and H stole it for me. Cover F for me is iconic, it’s the cover I remember from back when the book first came out almost 23 years ago. For me this cover is synonimous with the series. Cover H is really eye catching, and as a Gryffindor myself, this one is another winner for me!

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 for April Fool’s – a trick of the eye.
