Friday Face-Off – 14th August 2020

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 glasses or spectacles – “One could mention many lovable traits in Smee. For instance, after killing, it was his spectacles he wiped instead of his weapon.”. This week I went with Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks

And the winner is… COVER B!

Simple and beautiful. I love the image of the typewriter with a pair of reading glasses near by. I imagine the writer taking a brief break. In fairness most of these are winners in my book as I absolutely love the old typewriters. Cover H is a special mention though this week as my runner up!

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 featuring a potion – “Hubble, bubble, toil and trouble!”

  1. Blimey! I didn’t know Tom Hanks had written stories… And yes – I completely agree with your cover choice – though I think they are all strong offerings.


      1. *sighs* So he is a gifted writer AS WELL AS being one of the finest actors of his generation?? If he didn’t come across as so nice, I’d probably hate him:)
