Friday Face-Off: Exotic
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:
“That which yields, is not always weak”
~ a cover that is EXOTIC
When I saw this week’s topic, I immediately thought of City of Brass. Exquisite, spellbinding, and exotic are all words that perfectly describe this gorgeously written novel, and I remember well the way it transported me to its rich world of fantasy and magic. The book has been graced with a couple of beautiful covers as well, and today I want to feature and compare the US and UK editions:
HarperVoyager US (2017) vs. HarperVoyager UK (2018)
I’m definitely biased today, as the US version is the one I own, and it is even more stunning in person. I just love the fiery contrast of the colors and gold embossed detail.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
