Friday Face-Off: A Wrap-Around Cover
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 WRAP-AROUND COVER
Today I’m doing something a little different by comparing the covers of all the books in a single series – and what a great series this is! The Memoirs of Lady Trent is one of my all-time favorites, and each volume is graced with a wrap-around book jacket featuring the gorgeous dragon artwork of fantasy artist Todd Lockwood.
Let’s take a look at them now:
A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan (2013)
The Tropic of Serpents by Marie Brennan (2014)
The Voyage of the Basilisk by Marie Brennan (2015)
In the Labyrinth of Drakes by Marie Brennan (2016)
Within the Sanctuary of Wings by Marie Brennan (2017)
Almost impossible to choose a favorite considering how they’re all so beautiful, though I confess to being somewhat partial to anything to do with the ocean and maritime fantasy. So it’s The Voyage of the Basilisk for me!
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
