The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.
I only occasionally do the Face-Off nowadays after creating my own 200 Words or Less Friday feature (there isn’t one this week as my shoulder is still playing up). The Face-Off is a meme that I have always enjoyed as I find it cool to look a the various covers from different countries.
This weeks theme is: Bird “Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs are too sweet and wild”
Now, when I saw the theme “Bird” I immediately thought “woohoo” in the vein of Homer Simpson as I knew that there was bound to be some great covers out there featuring some stunning birds for me to look at……
…….Unfortunately I had jumped the gun as the theme didn’t mean that sort of bird and alas, it instead meant the “flying and flapping wings” type of bird and not the “cor blimey, that’s a stunner of a bird!” type of bird. And my woohoo moment soon turned into a doh!
Oh well, I’m sure there’s plenty of birds to be found on the internet so no harm done! 🙂 And after rectifying my mistake, I found a book that fits the theme perfectly and I give to you all:
Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield.
As I gave you a menagerie of covers, 13 in total I have chosen 2 as my favourites:
Cover B and Cover F.
