The Friday Face-Off is hosted by Books by Proxy, where each week bloggers can showcase books with covers centered around a weekly theme.
“You couldn’t not like someone who liked the guitar.”

I have to admit, this week was harder than I thought it would be. There are plenty of romance guitar-centric books, but they would feel completely out of place on this blog:-) Instead, I’ve decided to use the theme of “guitar” loosely, and so I chose The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I know, I know, Kvothe plays the lute, but hey, it’s in the same family as a guitar! Here is a sampling of covers that show Kvothe’s lute:
Czechoslovakian | Polish 2008
Portuguese 2009 | Serbian 2011
Georgian 2016 | Latvian 2013
The first one is actually the same cover as the original US hardcover, which is very hard to find these days, and Goodreads only had a teeny tiny jpeg that wasn’t working for me. And I happen to own the original US edition, which I’m pretty happy about! But I have to say my favorite goes to:
I love the romantic feeling of the artwork, and I also like the way Rothfuss’ name is spelled!
