The road goes ever on and on….
Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme being hosted by Books by Proxy . This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite books covers. The rules are fairly simple and can be found here. Each week, following a predetermined theme choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite. Simples. This week the theme is:
Like One, That on a Lonesome Road
A cover which features a road
I thought about this for a while and came up with a few choices but I’ve decided to go with The Fellowship of the Ring by JRRTolkien.
I quite like all of these to be honest for different reasons. I like the first one that clearly shows the fellowship heading off into a mysterious forest. The second one succeeds in having an epic feel with gandalf and his cloak flaring out. The third image is very peaceful and rural, a perfect picturesque countryside – just before the darkness moves in! And, finally a rather darker cover that reflects the seriousness of the Fellowship and their mission in I love the colours.
Difficult to choose this one but I would have to go for the first – I just love all the detail and the fact that the characters seem to be travelling on a road that is set to become darker!
