The Friday Face-Off: Green

    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:
A Green Cover

When I saw this week's topic was for a green cover, my first thought went to Jade City by Fonda Lee, one of the greenest covers I know. I hadn't looked at the various international editions of this book before, so it was really fun to see all the different covers that exist out there. There aren't a ton, but there's enough to have a good comparison. Let's check them out!

Jade City (The Green Bone Saga, #1)Ciudad de Jade (Saga de los huesos verdes, #1)Нефритовый город (The Green Bone Saga, #1)
2017 US Hardcover | 2019 Spanish | 2018 Russian

Yeşim Şehri (Yeşil Kemik Efsanesi, #1)Nefritové město (The Green Bone Saga, #1)Jade City
2020 Turkish | 2022 Czech | 2019 Japanese

My choice(s):
I really like the original US hardcover, but I have to say that the Russian and Japanese editions are really neat, too, and are covers I'd love to own. The Turkish edition is also really neat–maybe I should just say all of these covers are really well done, haha. 

What cover(s) do you like the most?

  1. The US one is the one that stands out the most to me!
