Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover

I totally judge a book by its cover! That’s why I’m so completely in love with these books by Penguin Classics. The covers are designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. The whimsical patterns are stamped on linen complete with ribbon markers. I want the whole set and I don’t even care what’s on the inside. Well, it does help that these fancy jackets encase the classics.

The first book that caught my eye was this one. Pink flamingos?! Yes, please.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

As if Shakespeare isn’t classy enough…

The Sonnets and A Lover's Complaint by William Shakespeare

Making Jane Austen even more romantic!

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

A peacock feather for Dorian Gray? Brilliant.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

The pictures really don’t do justice to these treasures. You gotta get your hands on one to truly appreciate it. I promise if you’re a book lover and appreciate the classics, you’ll want one! Buy me one while you’re at it.
