The Friday Face-Off: Bright

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:
"The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades." - Bright

There were probably some covers out there that fit the 'bright' topic better, but when I saw The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden, I immediately thought that that big burst of fiery delight should definitely count as bright. I am so blown away by how beautiful so many of the other editions of this book are, though I'm glad because it fits with how absolutely beautiful Arden's prose and story is. 

2019 US Hardcover | 2019 Serbian | 2020 French

2019 UK Hardcover | 2020 Portuguese | 2020 Czech

2020 Croatian | 2020 Italian | 2019 Croatian

My choice(s):

So many of these are so gorgeous, I really don't know how to pick!

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


  1. The US and Italian ones fit the theme the best, I think!

  2. The Serbian edition immediately caught my eye, its my favorite 😁
