Penguin Classics

I’ve been reading a lot lately- I find that more so than tv, I am able to check out and relax deeper when reading.  And I must admit, there have been times when I have picked up books because their covers are beautifully designed. I think it would be such a cool job to design book covers!  I have long been in love with these Penguin Classics hardcovers. These would dress up any bookshelf so nicely- and give you a great library to treasure forever!

My personal new favorite is the Emma cover….chairs, naturally….

But I also love the classic old school Penguin covers.The orange, white and black covers (clearly a new favorite color combo of mine) are just so fantastic.

And so when I saw this framed print by illustrator Alanna Cavanaugh I swooned- I love the graphic quality AND the book she chose to print!

Note the coffee stains. Makes it all the better.

There’s only one limited edition print left on her site so if you LOVE it, hop to it! :)
