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 found quite a few yellow covers while looking through my 'Read' shelf on Goodreads, but most of them only had one or two cover variations. Fortunately, I stumbled upon Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson (which I read years ago and honestly don't remember much about at all) and it has a very bright yellow (and green) cover that I think is a perfect fit for this theme. Let's have a look at some of the other cover variations that exist for this book!
2012 US Hardcover | 2012 US Paperback | 2014 Czech
2013 US Paperback | 2014 Turkish | 2013 Danish
2019 Romanian | 2013 French | 2017 Japanese
2013 Italian | 2012 Australian | 2018 German
It's hard to pick since these are all so different, but I do think I'm a bit partial to the original US hardcover edition that I read. I love the US paperback edition as well and I really like the blues from the Romanian edition!
What cover(s) do you like the most?
