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 with the word book in the title: “Books are a uniquely portable magic.” The book for this theme is The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly.
And the winner is… COVER C!
I loved the style of the artwork in this one. The muted, dark colours and the assortment of figures in it.
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 hole or black hole: “The relevant equation is: Knowledge = power = energy = matter = mass; a good bookshop is just a Black Hole that knows how to read.”

I love cover A – The rich gold filigree style on the dark blue really enhance the white writing, really stands out for me.
