Friday Face-Off – 6th July 2018

Friday Face-Off – 6th July 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 week’s theme is a cover which is windswept: ‘The north wind doth blow, and we shall have snow’.

This week’s book is The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

Cover E:

Cover F:

Cover G:

And the winner is… COVER G!

This one seemed to have a mysterious quality about it for me. I like the cloudy landscape and the sense of movement in the cloak and the tree really hit home the idea of windswept.

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 that features a ghost or spectre: ‘There’s more of gravy than of grave about you’.
