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 is brown. This one was a tough one, so I twisted it a bit. Rather than the cover being brown, the cover comes from a book written by Brown. Dan Brown, specifically, and his novel Inferno.
And the winner is… COVER B!
Maybe Dan Brown was a controversial shout. I know many people hate his work, but I am personally a big fan. And I also love Florence as a city, so this was a great read for me. A simple cover with that icon of Florentine architecture, Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore with the imposing visage of Dante Alighieri’s death mask. A great cover.
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!
