Friday Face Off: Fool versus Jester


Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a new weekly meme hosted at Books by Proxy. Every Friday two books will be lined up to be judged solely on their covers (that thing we are never supposed to do, but you know we all do it!)

This weeks theme: Better a Witty Fool than a Foolish Wit (A cover which features a fool or jester)

You know, I couldn’t find anything in the rules that said it had to be the same book. So this week, I am pitting Fool against The Jester!


These are two completely different styles so curious to see what people pick!

  1. The Jester cover is just far more sophisticated and layered. Though I think the Fool cover is eye-catching and indicates humour, which generally reflects Moore’s writing. Nice to have you on board with the Friday Face-off. I’m starting to scroll through for next week’s weapons call – the choice is head-swivelling:)
