Friday Face-Off – 9th July 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 a bridge: “I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.” My choice of book for this theme is The Bridge by Iain Banks.

And the winner is… COVER D!

I am always a bit of a sucker for a monochrome cover. I love the angular design, very geometric. And the little details like the smoke plumes really intrigue me. Judging a book by its cover, I just might have to get this book.

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 with the word book in the title: “Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
