Rule Forty-two. All persons more than a mile high to leave the court.

Here I am again, obsessing over Penguin Classics. Again. I mean, what else is new? They just get everything so right. Like these and these. And my latest idée fixe, the hardcover classics designed by Coralie Bickford Smith. I can’t stop thinking about them.

Coralie’s designs are stamped on the linen cases. The endpapers are colored. There are ribbon markers. Need I say more?

You can choose from a stellar variety of Victorian classics from the likes of Dickens and the Brontes, as well as childhood classics like Little Women and Treasure Island. Most importantly, you can secure the entire Jane Austen collection. I know.
