Book Traveling Thursday: A Book From A Favorite Author - Michel Faber!

Featured Image -- 266


This week I'm once again participating in Book Traveling Thursday!
"Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Catia from The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle's Book Blog. The idea of this group is check out the list of weekly themes for each month in this meme's Goodreads page and simply pick a book to match the theme! Once you've found a book, explore different covers of various editions for that book and make a post about it.  To find out more, you can check out our Goodreads group!

This week's theme is a book by one of your favorite authors, so I chose:
Under the Skin by Michel Faber
I've loved all of the books by Faber that I've red so far, and he is easily one of my favorite authors. I decided to pick Under the Skin because this book is so incredibly weird that I wanted to see what other covers looked like.

Original Cover Design:
 Under the Skin
2000, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Other editions:

Under the SkinUnder the SkinSotto la pelle
Under the SkinSotto la pelleΚάτω από το δέρμα
Derinin AltındaIspod kožeDie Weltenwanderin

Top Row: Paperback, Kindle, Italian
Second Row: Paperback, Italian, Modern Greek
Third Row: Turkish, Serbian, German

I'm pretty intrigued by these various covers. I opted not to include most of the movie tie-in ones because, well, I think they're pretty bad (personally, the movie looks completely off from the book anyway, but that's another story). I think the ones that have roads on them are best for this book in particular, and I'm really not sure what's up with the German. All in all, I think these are all a pretty interesting variety!

What do you think of these covers? Do you have a favorite? Have you read this book?

  1. What a fun meme! Maybe I'll join next week ;) I had not heard about this author but he certainly has a lot of covers. I like the one with the eye :D
