Friday Face-Off: Scream
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:
“It’s your favorite scary movie, remember? He had on the white mask, he stalked the babysitters.”

Halloween is almost here! To celebrate, I’ll be featuring the classics on Friday Face-Off for the full month of October. This week, we’ll be shining the spotlight on the controversial dystopian satirical black comedy novel by Anthony Burgess. Here are some of the covers:
From left to right:
W. W. Norton & Company A (1986) – W. W. Norton & Company B (2012) – Penguin Essentials (2011)
Ballantine Books (1971) – Penguin Classics (2010) – Penguin Books (1998)
Spanish Edition (2008) – Polish Edition (2007) – Portuguese Edition (2004)
Turkish Edition (2013) – German Edition (1999) – Hungarin Edition (2016)
Lithuanian Edition (2007) – Swedish Edition (2004) – Indonesian Edition (2017)
I deliberately left off any of the movie poster/tie-in covers this week, because clearly there are enough cool artistic covers to enjoy. My favorite this week is probably the Turkish Edition.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
