Penguin Fine Books

Just when I thought I couldn't geek out anymore about book design, Penguin releases a series of beautifully bound hardback books designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. The set includes The Picture of Dorian Grey, Pride and Prejudice, Madame Bovary, Wuthering Heights, Sense and Sensibility, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Crime and Punishment, Jane Eyre, Great Expectations, and Cranford. Unfortunately, they’re only available in the U.K. currently, so for now we drool at the photos online and make friends with the paperbacks.

This is my favorite book from the series:

Peacock feathers = always awesome. That's a beautiful book cover, the whole series looks amazing. I'm obsessed with book design.
