Friday Face-Off – 6th April 2018

Friday Face-Off – 6th April 2018

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 weeks’ theme is a cover featuring a family: ‘After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.’

This week I picked The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:

Cover E:


Cover F:


Cover G:



And the winner is… COVER G!

The silhouettes on this one win it for me. Simple design but tells you plenty about the book within the covers! Cover E gets a special mention ad my second favourite for similar reasons.

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 weeks’ theme is a book cover featuring a panorama: ‘Lawns and rocks and heather and different sorts of trees, lay spread out below them, the river winding through it.’
