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 is a cover featuring a gate or gateway chosen by Lynn of Lynns-books.
I have had an absolute nightmare with this theme, Gggrrrr! Damn you Lynn with your tricksy choice and I’m sure there’s thousands of books out there to with gates or gateways on the cover and I just couldn’t think of or find any!
This week I have chosen: The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien.
Cover C (This is the one I’m classing as having a gateway):
I just prefer this one to the other covers, but I also have to give a shout out to Cover E which came in a close second, Now, I know it doesn’t have the look, feel or tone of a Tolkien book but I do like ominous looking Dragon eyes.
Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??
