Friday Face-Off: Amulet
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:
~ a cover featuring an AMULET
Wow, I had a lot more trouble with this week’s topic than I expected. Luckily, while browsing through a list of books I’ve read, I came upon one edition of Shadow and Bone on Goodreads that fits the theme, so that settled it.
Since this is another book that has had many versions published, once again I’m only featuring the covers I think are the most interesting or that are standouts, which should make it easier to narrow down my favorites.
From left to right:
Henry Holt and Company (2012) – Indigo (2012) – Square Fish (2017)
Polish Edition (2017) – French Edition A (2013) – French Edition B (2017)
Italian Edition (2013) – Indonesian Edition (2013) – Czech Edition (2017)
Cerman Edition A (2012) – German Edition B (2014) – Vietnamese Edition (2014)
Oh, why are all the covers for this book so pretty? This week there are several strong contenders for my favorite, including the Indigo edition (not sure why they went with a different title), the Square Fish edition, the 2017 French edition, and the Italian edition (which has a very striking art style). I love cool blue shades, which is why narrowing it down to just one pick is very tough. There can only be one winner though, so I bit the bullet and made my choice.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
