penguin hardback classics

The designs are beautiful.

It’s almost Christmas.  And I’m tempted.

The set includes:

Madame Bovary – Gustave Flaubert
Great Expectations – Charles Dickens
Wuthering Heights – Emily Brontë
Sense and Sensibility – Jane Austen
Cranford – Elizabeth Gaskell
Tess of the d’Urbervilles – Thomas Hardy
Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
Crime and Punishment – Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Jane Eyre – Charlotte Brontë
The Picture of Dorian Gray – Oscar Wilde

I’ve read all except Cranford, a book I haven’t heard of until now.

The designs are by Coralie Bickford-Smith.

You can check the source of above photo and read the interview at The Penguin Blog.

I love my “yellowed Penguin classics”.

But these books are yummy!
