IN THIS CASE, JUDGE A BOOK BY THE COVER
Penguin Hardcover classics are almost too pretty to read… Almost.
Half the fun of book shopping is looking at the cover designs. We all do it, and as much as we say otherwise, the front cover of a book is a major influence on whether we buy it or not. Enter Penguin Hardcover Classics, as beautifully designed outside as the stories are inside. Coralie Bickford-Smith designed the pattern stamped, linen covered classics, from authors like Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and Lewis Carroll, among many others. These are rich, sophisticated books, for a fraction of what you would expect to pay. They’re a necessity for any budding home library, not just because they’re great books, but because they will be beautiful sitting on the shelf. — Carsen Russell
