The Friday Face-Off: 'You'

     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 'You' In the Title

This week I've chosen to feature Neil Gaiman's A Game of You, the fifth volume in the incredible Sandman series because it fits perfectly with the topic! There were a ton of neat covers to check out for this one, so let's have a look. :)

A Game of You (The Sandman, #5)Sen Oyunu (The Sandman #5)The Sandman: Un juego de ti (The Sandman #5, Colección Vertigo #248)
1992 US Hardcover | 2018 Turkish | 2004 Spanish

Sandman: Um Jogo de VocêThe Sandman. Пісочний чоловік. Книга 5: Гра в тебеSandman Vol. 5: A Game of You (The Sandman)
2016 Portuguese | 2020 Ukrainian | 2019 US Anniversary Edition

Sandman - Il signore dei Sogni n. 12 Sendmen 5: Igram se tebeUm Jogo de Ti (The Sandman #5)
1995 Italian | 2009 Serbian | 2016 Portuguese

My choice(s):
These all have such a similar vibe! I really like the illustration on the Italian edition, although it's a bit blurry unfortunately. The anniversary edition is also really pretty, and the rest are all both super similar and dissimilar at the same time so I'm having a hard time deciding which one I like best! The Ukrainian one is pretty captivating for me as well. What do you think about these covers?

What cover(s) do you like the most?
