Friday Face-Off – 16th September

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 that depicts machinery, cogs, gears or even AI: “We can control the future, my boy, just as we wind up the mechanism in a clock.” This week’s book is Clockwork by Philip Pullman.

And the winner is… COVER H!

This one was a slamdunk winner for me this week. It immediately catches my eye, and it seems to fit the concept of the book based on the short description I’ve read. I love the bleak town, the leering figure and the hulking knight taking centre stage.

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 depicts shadows: “The brightest flame casts the darkest shadow.”
