Friday Face-Off: “Book” in the Title

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy! Each Friday, we will pit cover against cover while also taking the opportunity to showcase gorgeous artwork and feature some of our favorite book covers. If you want to join the fun, simply choose a book each Friday that fits that week’s predetermined theme, post and compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme is:

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix

There were quite a few options I could have gone with this week, but this book’s covers were by far the most fun!

From left to right:
Quirk Books (2020) – Italian Edition (2020)

German Edition (2021) – Polish Edition (2021)


So many good ones this week, ranging from the charming to the obscene. For subtlety and elegance though, I’m going to have to go with the German edition for this one.

But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
