Why don't I own at least ONE of these?


These are the prettiest books I have ever seen. Don't you agree? I don't know how I didn't know about them sooner. I guess it's because they were only available in the UK until now. I cannot get over these gorgeous designs! The covers for this series of classics were designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith for Penguin. I can't afford them all, but I'm dying to get at least one or two! I can't decide which to get first. Get your own here! Thanks to Lindsey from LostAndFawned for bringing these beauties to my attention!

  2. Yay! I can't wait for my copies! I started with Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility and Wuthering Heights. Too bad not all of them are availible here in the states yet! I'm DYING for those copies of Little Women and Emma.

  11. I saw these some months ago. They are too tempting. I have so many books though that I really don't need to add to them. Did you order any?

  12. Oooh I love them, I bought five last year and they look too pretty on my bookshelf. Now I want more. Trouble is, they are all second copies of the titles for me... So it's hard to justify!
