Friday Face-Off: Wrapping Around


It’s time again for the Friday Face-Off meme, created by Books by Proxy, with weekly topics hosted by Lynn’s Book Blog.  The idea is to put up different covers for one book, and select a favorite.

This week’s theme is: A wrap around cover

I thought right away of Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies series, with some cool coordinating, wrap-around covers.

And bonus, the companion book to the trilogy:

Of the four, my favorite cover is the first one.  I think it did the most with the wrap-around format, as the full image looks strikingly different from seeing the front cover portion by itself.

There should be more wrap-around covers in the world…they’re a cool canvas for a bigger image.  Something to think about for my next book… 🙂

  1. This is a series where I owned all the books and never got around to reading them. So little time. But, I had no idea about the wrap around covers. I like your favourite too.

  2. I don’t think I’ve heard of this concept in a book cover before – pretty cool! I am not sure if I’ve read any books that have a wrap around cover. The impact is lost with Kindle reader books, unfortunately.
