Friday Face-Off – 9th August 2019

Friday Face-Off – 9th August 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 book cover featuring pirates: “I’m disinclined to acquiesce to your request.” This week I went with Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton.

Cover A:

pirates1

Cover B:

pirates2

Cover C:

pirates3

Cover D:

pirates4

Cover E:

pirates5

Cover F:

pirates6

And the winner is… COVER A!

There was something about cover A – the skull and crossed swords in the water is haunting, alluding to something sinister. Cover B came close for me this week, with another dark, atmospheric 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!

Next week’s theme is a cover that features feathers: “The haft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagles own plumes.”
