So, lets dig right in, shall we? These are 3 covers I've come across that made me stop and look at them for sheer wtf? factor, and when I saw Delicious (the last of the 3 I'd come across) I had to wonder if this was a trend that was here to stay. I mean, hair-obscured faces aren't all that new for book covers, but it's normally done in a more natural, wind-blown way. These three take a much more unnatural approach. But as I was putting the post together, I realized something else they had in common: they're all redheads. I'm not sure what to take from that odd fact, but there you have it.
Now, each book, even though they use a similar style and color, gives a very different feel. Which does it for you (or do you hate this trend)? Which makes you want to read the book, or at least look closer at the cover?
Which one does it better?
Last week on FFO: The Girl with the Mermaid Hair, Girl Wonder and Future Imperfect went superman-ice-cream-colored head to superman-ice-cream-colored head, with Girl Wonder just barely taking the win over Mermaid Hair - Future Imperfect, btw, had an imperfect showing, to say the least: it didn't even get 1 vote.
Do you have a suggestion for a future Friday Face Off? Leave it in the comments or email me!
