Friday Face-Off: Yellow
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:
“Sunny and bright”
~ a cover that is predominantly YELLOW
A pure yellow cover can be hard to find, and I also wanted a fantasy pick to fit the month’s theme of Wyrd & Wonder. Luckily, Trisha Levenseller’s Blade of Secrets provided a few good options, not to mention it was also a pretty awesome book.
From left to right:
Feiwel & Friends (2021) – German Edition (2022) – Pushkin’s Children’s Books (2022)
A sword engulfed in flames seems to be the common theme among these covers, but the Pushkin’s Children’s Books edition immediately caught my attention because of the art style. The fire might not be as realistic looking as the others, but it’s bold and loud and it just stands out.
But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
