Friday Face-Off: Cartoonish Cover

Friday Face-Off is a weekly meme originally created by Books by Proxy, and is currently hosted by Lynn’s Books.

The idea is to compare different book covers, based on a weekly changing theme.

The theme for Friday Face-Off this week is cartoonish book covers. For this theme, I chose to look at the book Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Each of these book covers have a dark, haunting vibe to them, but they all differ slightly.

These two covers have a similar style of illustration, though the pictures are of different things. The first a light blue sky background, while the other is set at night with eerie ghostly images all around.

Likewise, both of these book covers show the same image but with a few differences. The first is a lighter colour palette, while the second is much darker.

These two book covers are the most interesting, and the most ominous looking of all of them. I love the way that the house and trees fill the dress on the second image, and the way the trees look in the first.

Of all of the book covers, this one is my favourite. I love how clean the cover looks, while still keeping the dark, creepy look.

What do you think? Which of these book covers is your favourite?
