While out for lunch today, I popped by Full Circle Bookstore to pick up a new copy of Sartre's "No Exit
" (total lie " I was actually looking for "Percy Jackson and the Olympians
") when I noticed a beautiful collection of classics.
Full Circle has stocked this really lovely collection by Penguin Classics that rebinds favorites like "Tess of the D'Urbervilles
" and "Jane Eyre
." These books, a new collection that was released in November of last year, feature cloth binding and a matte-foil pattern splashed across the cover and spine. Each book gets a different treatment, most of them symbolizing something from the novel itself " for example, "Great Expectations
" features rows of silver chandeliers against a midnight blue cloth, and "Pride and Prejudice
" has golden swans against a honey-colored cover.
These are seriously beautiful books. Although I own most of the novels already, I'd love to buy these editions to display. Head over to Full Circle to pick up a few before they're gone.
