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:
This was a hard topic only because there were far too many options, and far too many of those options only had one or two cover variations! As such, I've decided to simply share a small variety of pretty book covers from different titles that always stand out to me when I see them–you can never have too many beautiful book covers, right!?
2018 Allen & Unwin | 2021 HQ
2018 Redhook | 2019 Ace
2021 William Morrow | 2015 Penguin
You have to be crazy if you think I could ever choose just one of these as a favorite! That being said, I will always be captivated by the cover for The Illumination of Ursula Flight, there's just something so classic yet unique about it at the same time. I also adore the little fox on The Fox and the Star.
What cover(s) do you like the most?
