Booklicious: Cloth-Bound Penguin Classics Arrive in U.S.

October 30, 2009


We're all familiar with the adage "don't judge a book by its cover," but a gorgeous cover on a beloved book is an unbeatable combination. Tapping into this idea, Penguin has released a collection of sweetly designed cloth-covered classics.

Created by Penguin senior cover designer Coralie Bickford-Smith, the cloth-bound books were originally released only in the U.K. but are available across the U.S. starting this week. Titles include Jane Eyre, Sense and Sensibility, Great Expectations and Lady Chatterley's Lover - you can browse the rest of the cloth-bound classics on Amazon. If you want to learn more about the collection, Design*Sponge has a great interview with Coralie Bickford-Smith.

I LOVE these books! I have a nice collection of vintage cloth-covered books with similar designs. They look awesome on a shelf as a collection.

I bought two books out of that series and am craving the rest. Though I didn't know there were these many! Could you supply the titles please? Thank you :D
