Friday Face-Off – 19th November 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 depicting a futuristic vista: “They too, knew this beautiful and harrowing landscape.” This week I have gone with J.G. Ballard’s The Burning World/The Drought.

And the winner is… COVER G!

The futuristic car buried nose down in the sand really screams drought to me. Plus I love the art design on this cover. Cover F is a close second. There is something eerie and unsettling about 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 black hole: “The relevant equation is: Knowledge = power = energy = matter = mass; a good bookshop is just a Black Hole that knows how to read.”
