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 is mostly white: “You look like Snow White killed the queen and stole the mirror.”
And the winner is… COVER A!
This one really caught my eye. Normally a flashy design, or vibrant colour palette really draws me in, but this week it is the absence of any of that that won out. The pristine white and they text design are really effective. A clean, legible font in stark contrasting black with the odd letter missing really add intrigue to this cover.
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 from a sci-fi novel written in 1975 or earlier: “I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”

Cover A is my winner too for exactly the same reasons as you have given.
