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:
My first thought upon seeing this topic was to go for My Heart is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones, but then I realized it really only has one cover variant right now, so I decided that The Phone Booth at the Edge of the World by Laura Imai Messina would make a great pick for this as well, and it has quite a few great cover options to look at. Let's have a look. :)
2021 US | 2020 UK | 2020 Italian
2020 Dutch | 2021 Romanian | 2020 Lithuanian
2020 Slovenian | 2020 Bulgarian | 2021 Polish
2021 Danish | 2021 Chinese | 2021 Serbian
I love a lot of these, but something about this Chinese edition just really seems to capture the feel of this book for me, and I think the US edition does it really well also. I also really love the Bulgarian and Polish editions!
What cover(s) do you like the most?
