THE FRIDAY FACE-OFF #8: Gravestone


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: GRAVESTONE!!!

For this week, I have chosen the cover for Neil Gaiman’s book “The Graveyard Book!” So, here are the covers!


Harper Collins – 2008


Bloomsbury – 2008




William Morrow Paperbacks – 2011








And the winner is…




Since this was the cover I got for this book, I loved this cover the best because it’s so beautiful and I just loved the way that the gravestone is in a swirling mist.
