Friday Face-Off – 23rd September 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 that depicts shadows: “The brightest flame casts the darkest shadow.” This week’s book is Dracula by Bram Stoker.

And the winner is… COVER D!

Cover D is a simple design, with a blood-red backdrop with a castle in the distance. The shadowy black bats and the black figure of the titular vampire are really streaking in what is an effortless design.

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 mostly black: “I see a red door and I want it painted black. No colours anymore, I want them to turn black”
