Friday Face-Off – 13th March 2020

Friday Face-Off – 13th March 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.

This week’s theme is a cover that is exotic: “He can come up with the most exotic things I’ve ever seen or heard of every time he blinks his eyes.” For this theme I’ve gone for Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Cover A:

exotic1

Cover B:

exotic2

Cover C:

exotic3

Cover D:

exotic4

Cover E:

exotic5

Cover F:

exotic6

Cover G:

exotic7

Cover H:

exotic8

Cover I:

exotic9

 

And the winner is… COVER E!

This week I found the choice a little tougher. The options gave me some real thinking to do. E stole it for me this week, I loved the old style map vibe it exudes, and the way the characters are imposed within it. There are some special mentions though this week – covers A, C and F are very close runners for me.

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 that is brown.
