Friday Face-Off – 23rd November 2018

Friday Face-Off – 23rd November 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 mermaid or merman: ‘The child is in love with a human. And not just any human. A prince!’

This week I went for Hans Christian Andersen’s classic The Little Mermaid.

Cover E:

Cover F:

Cover G:

Cover H:

Cover I:

And the winner is… COVER I!

I can’t really explain why this one spoke to me so much, but something about it resonated with me. The colours and the classic art style is really appealing.

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 cover featuring a vampire: ‘..the children of the night. What music they make!’
