Friday Face-Off – 22nd January 2021

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 an alien encounter: “we come in peace.” I chose The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham.

And the winner is… COVER I!

I love the striking colours and stylised design work. It has the iconic Triffid stood over a corpse, and the meteor crossing the sky. It’s cheesy, it’s vibrant and it’s eye catching.

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 from a classic sci-fi of my choosing.

  1. They are all really striking covers! I wouldn’t be able to pick between F, G and I.

    Have you read any of these books? It is not usually my sort of genre so I haven’t read any of them!
