Four and twenty blackbirds….
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 as Proxy is temporarily away from the fray I’m going for a freebie theme:
‘A pie of blackbirds’
With blackbirds in mind I’ve gone for Blackbirds (Miriam Black #1) by Chuck Wendig. This is a great series that I love and I’ve found 3 covers:
The first cover is the one I know and love – on the face of it, it’s a good deal simpler to look at than you first imagine, you really have to zoom in to appreciate the finer detail. The middle cover is very effective in terms of a shock of colour but I’m not quite sure what’s really supposed to be going on with the illustration. The final cover gives me the serious goosebumps – terrifying.
This week, absolutely no contest for me and I’ve made the image larger so you can really see what’s going on.
