In A Word: Adorable!

Friday, August 28, 2009

I love books. And not in a nerdy way. Well, a nerdy way. But I have supercute Prada eyeglasses, so that totally takes away from the nerdiness, no?

Penguin is recovering many of their classics (Wuthering Heights, Great Expectations, Sense & Sensibility, etc.) in original art and selling them! The above picture are books recovered in cloth with a matte-foil design, while Pride and Prejudice here has an original illustration from artist Ruben Toledo (who works with Vogue and Harper's Bazaar).

These would be so cute on a floating bookshelf with some funky bookends. However, I also recommend actually reading them. Have you ever been with a bunch of nerds who start whipping out lines from Wuthering Heights while laughing amongst themselves, and you sit there having zero clue what they're talking about?

I hate that.

Oh man, I'm in big trouble now...thanks a lot!! I have been slowly replacing all my mass market classics with hardbound or trade paperback and now that I'm nearing the end...this? O.k. where did you find this awesomeness? I think I need at least one...or two?
