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:
I'm reading quite a few books at the moment, so I decided to feature a recent five-star read that I read--J.R.R. Tolkien/Christopher Tolkien's The Children of Hurin! I'll confess, I've still never made it fully through The Silmarillion, but I've been dying to read other Middle Earth universe books and decided I would just move on and try them out, and I don't regret it at all. If you've enjoyed the Lord of the Rings trilogy and have been hesitant to read more books in the universe--don't be, The Children of Hurin was extremely readable and entertaining, although it is rather tragic. Anyway, enough of that--let's check out some of the many covers for this book!
2007 US Hardcover | 2009 US Paperback | 2009 Persian
2002 German | 2018 Polish | 1988 German
2010 Spanish | 2008 Dutch | 2009 French
2009 Dutch | 1994 Polish | 2010 Mass Market Paperback
I love the simplicity of these ones, I feel like they really stand out and make a statement!
What cover(s) do you like the most!?
