Friday Face-Off: Autumn/Fall
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:
“Warm September brings the fruit”
~ a cover that is seasonal for AUTUMN/FALL
Well, I’ve officially run out of books I’ve read with covers featuring color-changing foliage and falling leaves for this topic, so I’m going to look to another theme for fall: Harvests!
In this second book of The Passage trilogy, the apocalypse continues to unfold as our group of survivors take action to fight back against the virals and their collaborators, and even aim to take down the twelve original infected plague-bearers that started it all. Let’s take a look at the covers:
From left to right:
Random House (2012) – Orion Hardcover (2012) – Orion Paperback (2013)
Dutch Edition (2012) – Portuguese Edition (2013) – Spanish Edition (2013)
Turkish Edition (2014) – Serbian Edition (2012) – Bulgarian Edition (2013)
Romanian Edition (2019) – Finnish Edition (2013) – Hebrew Edition (2014)
I love a lot of the harvest covers, especially the ones with the gorgeous colors in the sky. Some of these are almost too beautiful for a bleak apocalyptic novel like this. My favorite is the Portuguese edition this week, because of the brilliant contrast between the fields and sky.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
