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 don't read all that much urban fantasy, but one that immediately came to mind was Luke Arnold's The Last Smile in Sunder City. I really love this series so far (the next book is coming out next month!) and also really love these covers. There aren't too many additional cover variants for this one, so I've decided to share the few that there are for each book that's out so far. Let's have a look at them.
2020 US Paperback | 2021 Portuguese | 2020 Italian
2020 US Paperback | 2021 German
2022 US Paperback
Now, I realize that the editions for Dead Man in a Ditch are not all that different, but I really liked the font on the German one and wanted to share it for that reason. That aside, the US edition of The Last Smile in Sunder City is my favorite, and I really just love these cover styles. The Portuguese edition is really beautiful, though!
What cover(s) do you like the most?
