Friday Face Off - Books with Magic in the title

   

The Friday Face Off meme created was by Books by Proxy and is now hosted by Lynn’s Books.  


Its a great way to show some of your favourite book covers. The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme, choose a book and compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite!  Up to date list of themes at Lynn’s Books

This weeks theme: Books with Magic in the title

I only had one book in mind when I saw the theme for this week, the first Discworld novel, The Colour of Magic.  There are some cracking covers for this book, my own copy is the UK 2005 cover.  Which is your favourite?

    1. My own copy is the 2005, I did plan to collect all of my Discworld books in this style but I ended up adding some of the coloured ones in.

  2. UK 2008. I love these covers because of the artwork and it is what made me try the books in the first place.

  4. It's funny how different these covers are, giving a downright different feeling about the same book ! UK2005 is my favourite, but Ukraine is not far behind :) And I haven't read this series yet (sigh) shame on me !

    1. It is a big series to get in to, possibly a little daunting as there are so many books!

  5. The UK 2014 jumped out at me. I like the graphics and the style of the cover.

  6. Though it’s more minimalistic, I do love Ukraine 2017 the best! The next one that also catch my eyes is germany 2008. Quite interesting to see what they made and so many different covers of a book!

  7. Aaaah!! I should have known you would go with a Terry Pratchett. I wanted to use The magic strings of Frankie Presto, but I never got around doing it. Life still a bit hectic on my side.

    Take care of yourself!

  8. The color of magic cover is pretty great. I'm drawn to dark colors, take a look at my closet and you'll notice this trend.

    1. I used to be all about dark colours but the older I get the more colour appears!

  9. I love the UK 2008 cover - it just seems to shout Pratchett to me.
