Well...this week I stumbled upon the UK Penguin Blog, which is so super cute and read an interview about one of the artists designing a new set of hardcover classics. To my disappointment they aren't yet offered in the US but hopefully that will change soon. My recommendations? The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde and Wuthering Heights by Emile Bronte.
The artist Coralie Bickford-Smith has also designed a series of classic boys adventure books...the best cover? She.
