Friday Face-Off – 8th February 2019

Friday Face-Off – 8th February 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 a snake: “Hi little cub. Oh no, don’t be ssscared.”

This week I have picked The Worm Ouroboros by E. R. Eddison.

Cover A:

Cover B:

snake2

Cover C:

snake3

Cover D:

snake4

Cover E:

snake5

Cover F:

snake6

Cover G:

snake7

Cover H:

snake8

And the winner is… COVER C!

I found cover C to be nice and clean, simple and exactly what I think of when I picture an Ouroboros. Cover F is a close second with the intriguing shape and the overall design.

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 heart for Valentine’s Day past.
