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 Friday Face-Off theme is a cover featuring a cage or prison: “It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones.” For this theme I’ve picked Curtis Dawkins’ The Graybar Hotel.

And the winner is… IT’S A DRAW!

Covers A and C clinch it for me this week. In both, the prison bars look hand drawn which for some reason really caught my eye. Both covers are really simplistic but at the same time they drew me in. It’s definitely an interesting sounding book, one to add to my list.

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 depicting time: “time waits for no man.”
