Friday Face-Off: Action
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 depicts ACTION
There were a lot of action covers to choose from this weeks, but I went with a novel of The Witcher because you can always count on Geralt of Rivia to bring the excitement. Here are some of the best covers I could find for this book:
From left to right:
Polish Edition A (1996) – Polish Edition B (2000) – Polish Edition C (2014)
Gollancz (2014) – Orbit – (2014) – Italian Edition (2014)
Portuguese Edition (2015) – Spanish Edition (2016) – Chinese Edition (2016)
French Edition (2010) – Russian Edition (2020) – Finnish Edition (2014)
So many great action covers, I can’t choose just one. So here are three of my favorites this week! (I especially love the flock of birds flying in dragon formation on the Russian edition!)
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
