I love, love, love the design of these books! They are the new Penguin Classics hardcover series, and the cases are so beautiful. I want a collection of them for my bookshelf just so that I can look at their spines. I want to get the ones that I haven't read, but I like all of them! The Odssey cover is particularly beautiful, and it's clever how each pattern relates to the contents of the book. Each cover is cloth with a matte stamping over it. Penguin made a really smart choice in doing this series. They're affordable too! Only $13.50 each on Amazon. The designer for the covers is Coralie Bickford-Smith. What a great opportunity to get to work on this series.
