Friday Face-Off: Out of Perspective and A Bit Dizzy

  • by

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy! Each Friday, we will pit cover against cover while also taking the opportunity to showcase gorgeous artwork and feature some of our favorite book covers. If you want to join the fun, simply choose a book each Friday that fits that week’s predetermined theme, post and compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme is:

~ a cover that is OUT OF PERSPECTIVE, or make you feel a bit DIZZY

Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky

I don’t know if any of these make me dizzy, exactly…but the perspective on some of them are definitely a bit wonky! Not surprising, I guess, considering this book was kind of strange. It’s a horror story, obviously, but I recall not really enjoying it because it was way too drawn out, overblown, and self-indulgent. But that’s neither here nor there, so let’s move on to the covers:

From left to right:
Grand Central Publishing (2019) – Orion Hardcover (2019) – Orion Paperback (2020)

German Edition (2019) – Italian Edition (2019) – Ukrainian Edition (2021)

Chinese Edition (2020) – Turkish Edition (2020) – Croatian Edition (2021)


I love the art style of the Ukrainian cover, which caught my eye right away! So I’m going to go with it as my winner this week.

But what do you think? Which one is your favorite?
