The Friday Face-Off: Pretty Covers

      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:

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!?

The Illumination of Ursula Flight  Midnight in Everwood
2018 Allen & Unwin | 2021 HQ

The Sisters of the Winter Wood  Unnatural Magic
2018 Redhook | 2019 Ace

The Betrayals  The Fox and the Star
2021 William Morrow | 2015 Penguin

My choice(s):
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?


  1. I love how these all look kind of similar! I love the Midnight in Everwood cover.

  2. These all look so pretty together as a group! I think my favorite is The Betrayals­čśü
