The Friday Face-Off: Forest

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:
‘None of the Jungle People like being disturbed.’ - Forest/Jungle

This week's topic is forest/jungle! There were so many options for this week, so I chose to highlight just a few covers from a small array of different books that feature forests! I sort of wanted to find some good jungle covers, but there were just so many more forests available. Let's take a look at some!

Empire of Wild by Cherie Dimaline

William Morrow 2020 | Penguin Random House Canada 2019 | 2019 Paperback

The Changeling by Victor Lavalle

Spiegel & Grau 2017 | 2019 Italian Edition | 2019 Korean Edition

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

2016 German | 2016 Spanish | 2016 Hungarian

In the Forest by Edna O'Brien
2003 Mariner Books | 2019 Portuguese | 2004 Modern Greek

My choice(s):
It's hard to pick a favorite among all this variety, but I did find myself really drawn to these ones in particular! I love the wolf on the Empire of Wild one with the forest through it, and the rest of these forest designs are just beautiful. 

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


  1. Novik's covers are always gorgeous, I especially like the Hungarian one!

  2. These are fantastic! I absolutely love the Hungarian cover of Uprooted­čśü
