Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme created by Books by Proxy .   This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers.  The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme (list below) choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.   Future week’s themes are listed below. This week’s theme:

‘Checkmate’ – a cover featuring a black and white design.

And I’ve chosen Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

My favourite(s) this week:

I like the simplicity of the above cover

And this one is so unusual – it almost plays a trick on you when you try to read it.

Which is your favourite?
