The Friday Face-Off: Pattern

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:

This topic was so fun! I really wanted to just stick to one cover like you're supposed to, but... there were just too many! In a coincidental timing fashion, the entire Wormwood trilogy has some great patterning on its covers, and there were quite a few others that I thought had some unique variations of patterns as well, so I just decided to share a select few from different books.

Rosewater (The Wormwood Trilogy, #1)The Rosewater Insurrection (The Wormwood Trilogy, #2)The Rosewater Redemption (The Wormwood Trilogy, #3)
2018 Orbit | 2019 Orbit | 2019 Orbit

To Best the Boys
2019 Thomas Nelson | 2018 Knopf | 2014 Farrar, Straus, Giroux

2017 Chicken House | 2017 Imprint |  2014 Thomas Dunne

My choice(s):
To Best the Boys
I really love all of the colors on the Rosewater books, but I really love these two covers! The hedge maze pattern is so beautiful to me for some reason for To Best the Boys, and I am so enamored with the patterning on Wolf in White Van. Definitely not a cover that's easy to forget!

What cover(s) do you like the most!?


  1. Ooh, that maze on To Best the Boys is really amazing!

  2. I love all of these!! Especially the Rosewater trilogy and Alias Hook😁
