Friday Face-Off – 10th May 2019

Friday Face-Off – 10th 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 featuring a party, celebration or festival: “As full of spirit as the month of May.”

This week I went with Maskerade by Sir Terry Pratchett.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


Cover F:


And the winner is… COVER E!

Another winner picked from a cover I own. It is one of a series of covers designed by Joe Mclaren, finished in a faux canvas material with embossed features inlaid with metallic foil details. This cover is absolutely stunning, as are all of the Joe Mclaren covers.

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 fantasy beast: “The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow!”
