Friday Face-Off: A Picture Within A Picture
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 featuring A PICTURE WITHIN A PICTURE
My goodness, this week’s topic was hard! My pick probably barely qualifies, but oh well – it was a book I enjoyed and it has some great covers, so check them out!
From left to right:
Quick Books Hardcover (2016) – Quirk Books Paperback (2017) – Russian Edition (2020)
German Edition (2019) – Portuguese Edition (2019) – Czech Edition (2018)
Like a lot of Grady Hendrix’s stories, this novel was a bit offbeat, and I think that calls for an offbeat cover. The Quirk paperback edition mimicking a VHS sleeve for an old-school campy horror movie might be come off as kind of gimmicky, but hey you just gotta love it!
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
