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:

‘The seaweed is always greener, in somebody else’s lake.’ – Under the Sea

As January is the start of Vintage Sci Fi I’ve gone for a classic this week:  Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.  I didn’t even scratch the surface of covers this week – my giddy aunt, you can’t really go wrong with the classics can you, they’re always a feast of covers:
