Friday Face-Off – 24th May 2019

Friday Face-Off – 24th May 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 theme is a cover with something to do with magic: “Bibbity, Bobbity, Boo!”

For this theme I picked The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter,

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:

Cover F:


And the winner is… COVER E!

I love this cover – the rich red colour and the repeating pattern is really pleasing on the eye. The geometric style of the cover is simple but 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 favourite fantasy cover: “Simples.”
