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.

I love my “yellowed Penguin classics”.
But these books are yummy!
