Friday Face-Off – 26th February 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 that features the word MAGIC in the title: “Books are a uniquely portable magic.” For this theme I have picked Sir Terry Pratchett’s The Colour of Magic.

And the winner is… COVER H!

Another tough decision this week! So many covers that I love in this selection. That said, H snatched it. It features two things that I always think of when Discworld comes to mind. I love this one.

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 little open-ended. With March being named for the Roman god of war, Mars, the theme is a cover that is Roman in style, depicting war, or depicting a god or gods: “If complete and utter chaos was lightning, then he’d be the sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet copper armour and shouting ‘All gods are bastards!”
