Striped Cover | Friday Face Off

This is a weekly thing created by Books by Proxy, but currently run by Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme: “And who decided which people wore the striped pyjamas” – A cover that is striped

My pick: I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

Ok, I read this book once and it wasn’t for me, but the book cover is cool.

Hardcover (2014) by Dial Books, Paperback (2015) by Walker Books, Portuguese (2015) by Editorial Presença

Paperback (2015) by Speak, Swedish (2014) by Gilla Böcker, Icelandic (2018) by Bókabeitan

Vietnamese (2017) by Nhã Nam, NXB Lao Động, Georgian (2017) by პალიტრა, Chinese (2015) by 木馬文化

My favourite

This is a difficult choice this time?? I like the colourful droplets of the Portuguese edition and how it’s similar, but not the same to the original english one. But the font is so horrible. Actually I think the minimalism, but also obvious sun, of the last Chinese edition is the one I prefer.

    These are all beautiful in their own way! I think my two favorites are the Vietnamese and the Portuguese covers, it’s hard to choose😁
