The Friday Face-Off: Planets

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:
“You’re on Earth. There’s no cure for that.” - Planets

This week's topic just reminded me that it's been a while since I've read a space book! There were a lot of individual options, but not a lot that had a bunch of different cover editions.. and then I remembered The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury, and what could be a better choice than that for this topic?

2013 Harper Voyager | 1997 William Morrow | 2017 Spanish

2013 William Morrow | 2012 Simon Schuster | 2005 Harper Collins

2013 Turkish | 2001 Book-of-the-Month Club | 2001 Russian

1949 Russian | 1984 Bantam Books | 1992 Lithuanian

2016 Georgian | 1967 Latvian | 2019 Spanish

My choice(s):
I love the classic style of all three of these!

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


  1. Wow, these are all so different! I think my favorite is the 2016 Georgian.

  2. Ooh great choice, there are a lot of good covers here. My favorites are the 1949 Russian and the Bantam covers😁
