Friday Face-Off: White
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 WHITE
The Court of Broken Knives is unlikely to shatter any molds in the grimdark genre, but I do have to give it credit for its gritty elegance. Also, the writing is exquisite, and so incredibly polished and well done. I think the same can be said about the book’s covers, which are more on the plain and simple side at first glance, but a closer look reveals more.

I had a hard time choosing a favorite this week, because I’m not generally a fan of covers with a lot of white space. Also, they all seemed pretty generic – at least at first. However, the HarperCollins edition redeemed itself somewhat, after I examined it a bit more closely and noticed some details I had missed, so that’s the one I’m going with.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
