The Friday Face-Off: Books with 'Book' in the Title


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:
Books with 'Book' in the Title

There were seemingly endless possibilities this week, so rather than just picking one cover, I decided to pick a bunch of covers! Even with that, though, there were a lot of options to choose from, so it's only somehow a small handful (seriously, titles in the vein of "The Book of X" are abundant!). Regardless, let's have a look at them. :)

My choice(s):
These are all so unique and lovely, I'm not sure I'll pick a favorite this week!

What cover(s) do you like the most?


  1. Something about The Book of Speculation is drawing me in!

  2. I love these! I have to say I'm very fond of The Book of Accidents, probably because I just read it๐Ÿ˜

  3. I think I like all three of the first ones and The Children's Book the most!
