Friday Face-Off: Birds
Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy! Each Friday, we will pit cover against cover while also taking the opportunity to showcase gorgeous artwork and feature some of our favorite book covers. If you want to join the fun, simply choose a book each Friday that fits that week’s predetermined theme, post and compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.
This week’s theme is:
“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs are too sweet and wild”

Miriam Black series by Chuck Wendig
That’s right, this week I’ve decided to do something different by featuring the covers to every book in the excellent Miriam Black series! After all, how could I decide on just one when they all fit the theme?
Originally published by Angry Robot, the first three books had covers designed by artist Joey Hi-Fi. When the series was picked up by Saga Press and reissued though, they were also re-branded with a new look. Let’s check them out now:
While the new Saga Press covers are gorgeous and I like them very much, I’m still going to have to go with the old covers for this one. Joey Hi-Fi’s unique style gives them personality, not to mention his designs also feature Miriam who looks totally badass with the birds making up her image and flying all around her.
What do you think? Which ones are your favorite?
