Friday Face-Off – 27th August 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 a beach: “On an island in the sun, we’ll be playin’ an’ havin’ fun. And it makes me feel so fine, I can’t control my brain.” This week the book is The Beach by Alex Garland.

And the winner is… COVER C!

I love the style of this one. Simple design, vibrant colours and the ominous skull. It’s a really punchy, effective design that really caught my eye.

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 that is 1920s noir style: “It’s a noir world. Unfair things happen.”
