Friday Face-Off – 1st April 2022

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 theme is a cover from a book depicting a sport: “It’s a game of two halves.” This week’s book is Terry Pratchett’s Unseen Academicals.

And the winner is… COVER B!

I always run into the same problem every time I feature a Pratchett novel – each book seems to have a fantastic array of covers all worthy of credit on the Friday Face-Off. Personally, covers C, E and I are worthy of honourable mentions. But B is the standout winner this week for me. It’s a classic cover that I immediately recognise. I love the team photo vibe to it, and the menacing look of the Librarian as he holds firmly onto the ball.

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 book with a cover that is predominantly green: “We sat in silence, letting the green in the air heal what it could.”
