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.

I like the one you chose, the concept is very clever and effective! My favorite might be the third one though, I love the elegant style.
I think it definitely makes sense that you like the one you have 🙂 I think I prefer the second cover. Great book choice – it’s one I haven’t read.
Thanks! It’s a really good book!
Great choice. I love this book and in fact Neil Gaiman’s writing overall. I think the third is my favourite here – don’t think I’ve seen that cover before but it really appeals to me.
