The Friday Face-Off: Flight

Friday Face Off New
Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme at Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe. You can find a list of upcoming topics at Lynn's Books.

This week's topic is:
Flight – any type of flight – to flee, to fly

This week's scheduled topic is 'bodice ripper,' but I don't actually think I've ever read an actual bodice ripper, so I've opted to do last week's topic since I didn't do it last week. I thought about using one of the Kushiel's Dart books for bodice ripper, but I really don't want to give the wrong impression about those books because I wouldn't want someone to go into those thinking it's going to be a bodice ripper and then getting, well, Kushiel's Dart, haha. Plus, I think flight is a really fun topic! 'Flight' and 'flee' both have a lot of options--flying in the air? fleeing from something/someone? Rather than picking just one cover, I decided to feature a variety of covers that features varying ideas of 'flight.' :)
