My First Coralie Clothbound

Coralie Bickford-Smith's designs for Penguin's Clothbound Classics are pretty well known, and for good reason: They are beautiful. I mentioned them here just over a year ago, when the first series came out but now there are dozens.

And as of this week, I officially own one (yes, just one unfortunately). The clothbounds are usually $20, but I picked mine up for 40% off at a closing Borders. I actually already own a similar Dickens Christmas collection but I couldn't pass this up. When I left the store I felt like I had purchased a work of art by Coralie, not just a story collection.

Coralie is a senior cover designer at Penguin, and has a lot of other great work up on her website.
