#SciFiMonth Friday Face-Off: Grey

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 that is predominantly GREY

Mogsy’s Pick:

Artemis by Andy Weir

It’s Sci-Fi November! To celebrate, I’ll be featuring science fiction titles on Friday Face-Off for the full month. Kicking us off, this week we’re shining the spotlight on Andy Weir’s Artemis, an entertaining caper that takes place on the moon. Let’s take a look at some of the covers:

From left to right:
Crown (2017) – Del Rey (2017) – Subterranean Press (2018)


Swedish Edition (2018) – Hebrew Edition (2018) – Estonian Edition (2018)

Lithuanian Edition (2019) – Korean Edition (2017) – Russian Edition (2017)


As soon as I discovered there was a Subterranean Edition, it was over! I always enjoy their covers, and this one was especially nice. Just look at that stunning detail.

But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?

  1. This is a great choice and you’re spot on (imo) with your favourite. I was really drawn to that cover when I was scrolling down and just had to zoom into all the detail.
    Lynn 😀


  2. Ooh I really like that Del Rey 2017 cover. I also like the Hebrew and Estonian editions. Some of these are pretty neat!

    the Hebrew one seems rather tongue in cheek though I have to say. 🙂


  3. I lean towards the Del Rey edition, with the Subterranean edition a close second. Very different views, but not having read the book yet I don’t know which best suits the story.


  4. AHHH!! I LOVED THE Crown 2017 one! And the Del Rey one!! SUCH A VIBRANT COLOR!! 😍😍❤️❤️❤️ But the one you chose looks really dynamic and I LOVED IT AS WELL!! ❤️❤️😍😍


  5. I think my favourite is the Del Rey one. I think it’s the colours of it (: I still need to read this book, I have it (and another by the author) on my TBR though.
