Friday Face-Off: Chaotic Colors

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:

“Maybe too much going on…”
~ a cover featuring CHAOS

Warcross by Marie Lu

I’m a fan of minimalistic and subtler styles when it comes to art, so whenever I see covers with lots of color, they always seem more chaotic to me!

From left to right:
G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers (2017) – Penguin Books (2019) – Spanish Edition (2018)


German Edition (2018) – French Edition (2018) – Polish Edition (2019)


Well, I probably gave away my pick in the intro. I prefer clean, simple and elegant covers but I also like the colorful design of the G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers edition, so that’s my favorite this week.

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

  1. We have to admit we are not that impressed by these book covers. The best of all these we find the French edition.
    We visit every year the Bologna Book Fair that is the biggest one for beautiful books. There you can admire great book covers.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend

  2. There’s something about the Spanish edition that draws me in. It’s almost like Blade Runner or Neuromancer with superheros (she’s wearing a cape, isn’t she?). 🙂
