Friday Face Off: Tunnel

Friday Face Off is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, and run by Lynn’s Book Blog. You can check out all my past Friday Face Offs here

This weeks theme:  Tunnel

At the end of every light, is a tunnel of darkness.

My Choice: Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets

The entrance to The Chamber of Secrets is a tunnel!

I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding J.K. Rowling right now, and while I completely disagree with her comments I still love the books.  I believe you can love the book and dislike the author.  But despite that I still wasn’t sure I should choose Harry Potter this week, but this post is to celebrate the awesome covers and their artists, not the author, so I am going to stick with it.

Covers:

Scholastic 1999 | Pottermore 2015 | Raincoast 2000 |  Bloomsbury 2014

Bloomsbury 2016 | Scholastic 2002 | Raincoast 2004 | Bloomsbury 2010

Scholastic 2013 | Salamandra 2000 |Pottermore 2016 | Carlsen 2013

Raben 2010 | Arthur A. Levine 2002 | French & European 2004 | Arthur A. Levine 2018</span

Bloomsbury 2015 | Gramedia 2017 | Carlsen 2018 | Bloomsbury 2018

Rubinstein | Editura Arthur 2016 | Hoerverlag 2009 | Law 2013

This isn’t all the covers, there are A LOT of HP covers, so I only picked the better ones!

How have I never seen this cover before?!?! I love the fairy tale aspect of it and the art is perfect!

  1. There are two that I really liked. The first was the Bloomsbury 2014, the second is one of your least favourites: French & European 2004. They were both very different, but both really caught my eye and have a tunnel on them as well. I do like the one you selected though.

  2. I agree with you, I’m not going to get caught up in the JKR controversy because I love the books as well. I think it’s horrible to make readers choose between beloved books and authors. Saying that, I love so many of these! I do love the artwork on the Levine 2018 covers😁

  3. I completely agree with you there! Cover artists do need celebrating though and there are so many here that I’ve never seen before!
    I particularly like that Pottermore 2015 cover! The little figure holding up a glowing wand in a snake-like tunnel – beautiful! 😀
