Eyeballs are not all that uncommon on covers; in fact we've had them on FFO before. But these are two of the more recent - and more interesting takes - on the eyeball cover. And despite the differences in the treatment of the eyeball in question, the covers are actually pretty similar, right down to the super-pale background. So I'm curious - what do you guys think of this trend? Does it catch your eye [haha] at the bookstore or library? Or does it creep you out? And of course, for these two,
which did it better?
Last ^two^ weeks on FFO: The last Face Off of Fairy Tale Fortnight was between modern and traditional retellings, and traditional retellings just barely eked out a win. But really, with fairy tales, everyone's a winner!*
Before Fairy Tale Fortnight, we had a face off between Hourglass & Impossible, and Impossible won for its mix of beauty and strangeness. And though not everyone is a winner on this one, you can be - there are a few days left to enter to win Impossible here!
*Statement does not apply to the following: Wicked Stepmothers, Evil Queens, Big Bad Wolves and other Big Bad creatures, Rumpelstiltskin, people who live in or eat gingerbread houses, giants up to and including those who live atop beanstalks, trolls, and all manner of sorcerers and wizards. Winning is based solely on the satisfaction of having read a good book or told a good tale 'round the campfire; monetary value not to exceed 1/100th of a cent and a pair of glass slippers. Mgmt is not responsible for cracked slippers, and repair costs are the sole responsibility of the wearer. Slippers may or may not be delivered by a charming Prince [not to be confused with this guy], but the Prince is a bit of a dolt and easily distracted by shiny things.
