Friday Face-Off – 6th October 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 a vampire: “How do we seem to you? Do you find us beautiful and magical? Our white skin, our fierce eyes? ‘Drink,’ you ask me. Do you have any idea of the things you will become?” This week’s book is Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu.

And the winner is… COVER C!

It’s simple and effective. Cover C is very striking. The simplicity of the colour palette is well used. And rather than intricate imagery, the cover uses negative space to great effect.

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 witches or warlocks: “Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft were written by men.”


One thought on “Friday Face-Off – 6th October 2022

  1. Cover G – The white face, sunken dark eyes and blood red lips with the graveyard behind, very eerie and screams of vampires lol.
