Friday Face-Off – 3rd January 2020

Friday Face-Off – 3rd January 2020

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.

Welcome to the first Friday Face-Off theme of 2020. new beginnings: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” For this I’ve picked Double Star by Robert A. Heinlein.

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

Cover D:

Cover E:

Cover F:

And the winner is… COVER A!

When thinking of new beginings, especially with the given quote for this week’s theme, space travel certainly fits that bill. Cover A has all of the classic, old-school charm from the old sci-fi books, and I love it.

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 vintage sci-fi: “Live long and prosper.”
