Friday Face-Off – 8th March 2019

Friday Face-Off – 8th March 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 cover theme is a cover featuring fish: “Two little fishes and a momma fishy too”.

For this theme I picked the classic novel The Old Man and the Fish by Ernest Hemingway.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


Cover F:


Cover G:


And the winner is… cover A!

Something about this cover appealed to me this week. The simplicity and the style of the artwork really worked for me. Nothing too loud or lively, but effective none the less.

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 shapeshifter: “Beware the moon, lads.”
