Friday Face-Off – 29th March 2019

Friday Face-Off – 29th March 2019

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 cover theme is a cover featuring a unicorn: “I thought unicorns were more… fluffy.”

This week I have gone with A.A. Attanasio’s The Dragon and the Unicorn.

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

unicorn2

Cover D:

unicorn4

Cover E:

unicorn5

Cover F:

unicorn6

And the winner is… cover B!

This one was a runaway winner for me. The monochrome design, and the Yin and Yang style to it, the way the dragon and the unicorn fit together, one formed in the void of the other I found to be very effective.

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 featuring a desert landscape: “Nomad is an island.”
