The Friday Face-Off: Black Cover


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:
Black Cover

There are a lot of great black covers to choose from for this topic, and when I saw Sin Eater by Megan Campisi I knew it would be the perfect choice for this week because what a great title for an October pick! I was surprised to see how many covers there were for this one, and even more surprised by how beautiful and colorful they all are! So not a very black cover choice overall, but it works. Let's have a look. :)

Sin EaterThe Sin EaterLa custode dei peccati
2020 US Hardcover | 2020 UK Hardcover | 2022 Italian

A Devoradora de PecadosA bűnevő食罪者
2021 Portuguese | 2021 Hungarian | 2021 Chinese

La comedora de pecadosThe Sin Eater
2021 Spanish | 2021 UK Paperback

My choice(s):
These are all so unique! I'm partial to the US hardcover because I love the simplicity of it, but I think a lot of these are really lovely, and the Chinese one is so unique. 

What cover(s) do you like the most?


  1. I feel like a black cover would be pretty hard to find! I love the variety in all these covers!

  2. These are so varied- I really like that first one though..

  3. This is a great choice! My favorite is also the US hardcover, and I love the Portuguese and Chinese editions as well, they are so strange!
