Find of the Week: Penguin Hardcover Classics!

23 Aug

I am completely, 100% guilty of choosing a book by it’s cover.  When I have the luxury of going to the library alone, I will stand there for what seems like an hour picking up book after book after book based on whether or not it catches my eye. Somehow the right one always lands on my nightstand. If you’re as much of a book snob as I am when it comes to jacket design, then you will love these Penguin Hardcover Classics, my Find of the Week this week!

They’re part of a series of re-releases that Penguin has been doing, featuring many of their beloved editions. The gorgeous books are designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith and have stamped linen covers and ribbon markers, and come in eye-popping brights that are just the right combination of sophisticated and playful. They’ve recently released four “new” novels: Dracula, Middlemarch, A Tale of Two Cities, and Gulliver’s Travels. Each is $20, and available from Penguin’s website. Wouldn’t you just love to line up a few dozen of these in a row…or collect one a month forever? Keep them coming, Penguin!
