When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it…

A cover which features a plane

Welcome to my first contribution to the fabulous Friday Face Off, a weekly meme hosted by Books by Proxy. Today's theme is aeroplanes and I have chosen God of the Hive by Laurie R King, #10 in the Mary Russell series, and am pitting the UK and US versions of the cover against each other, both of which feature an aeroplane for good measure:

UK Edition
US Edition

For me, it has to be the UK edition for the striking colour and the 1920's feel, which is the decade in which the book is set.
