Friday Face-Off · Various Things

Friday Face-Off July 8th.


The Friday Face-Off is a new meme created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the UK and US covers of a book with each week  being a certain theme, this week’s theme in lieu of Proxyfish’s recent absence from the blogging community has been decided to be a cover which features animals.

This week I have chosen: Tailchaser’s Song by Tad Williams.

Instead of just comparing the UK and US cover, For the Face-Off this week I’m going to give you a choice of 4 different covers, labelling them A through to D.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:



The Winner: Cover A:


For me, while it’s quite simple the black and white colour scheme looks really smart, contrasting and stands out.

Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??

  1. What a lovely set of covers, Drew:). I like your black and white one very much – in fact they are all great – but my favourite is D. The cat looks so very… feline and I also love the misty backdrop.

  2. Honestly, if I was judging a book by it’s cover, only A would get me to pick up a copy. Perhaps B might pique my interest enough to read the blurb, but also perhaps not, and if I was buying it based on only the knowledge of the cover… It would have to be A! Great to see the difference a cover makes, and how different covers can appeal to different people!

  3. Personally, I don’t like any of these covers but I’d have to agree with you on the black and white one. I’m a dog lover not so much cats. I don’t think I’d ever read a book with a cat on the cover. Have you read this or did you just look for the ugliest book covers you could find? 😂 Hugs❤️

  4. I would pick up A or C. But A is definitely better. The cat has seems to have it’s own serious catly business to tend to. Makes me think, “what’s going on with this cat here?”

  5. Definitely the first one. The other covers kind of look like they’re from the ’70’s/’80’s. The ones you find in thrift shops ;).
