Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme here at Books by Proxy. Join me every Friday as I pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe.
Hey everyone! I’m joining in this new book meme called “The Friday Face-Off” which is hosted by Books by Proxy and this week’s theme is: HEART!!!
For this week, since we are a week away from October, I have decided to choose Edgar Allan Poe’s classic tale “The Tell-Tale Heart” in time for Halloween! So here are some covers for this week:
Original Printing – 1843
Creative Education– 1980
Spanish Version– 2013
And the winner is…
This was another tough one this week! All of these covers looked so awesome, but I ended up picking the 1980s version of the cover. So creepy, especially the fact that the character on the cover is actually holding a real heart in his hands and I really loved the red coloring in the background that really brings out the creepy nature of this story!
