Friday Face-Off – 17th January 2020

Friday Face-Off – 17th 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.

With January well underway, here’s the third Friday Face-Off of 2020. This week’s theme is a cover featuring a horizon. I’ve returned to Wilbur Smith for this theme and his novel The Leopard Hunts in Darkness.

And the winner is… COVER A!

A visually stunning and expansive horizon shot, awash with the wonderful orange shade. This is one of the more eye catching covers I’ve picked.

I found this quite an easy choice this week. It was a spectacular 

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 for the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Rat.
