If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time you know that I am obsessed with the clothbound Penguin Classics designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith. Up until, well now, they were only available in the UK, a small hurdle in the quest for literary perfection, but yet enough of one that I myself haven’t ordered any yet. Now they are being released in the US, and I’m so so excited! I don’t know which one I want most, I kind of actually just want them all. Not to be incredibly sappy, but I just imagine us having children with a bookshelf of the classics ready to go because that’s how I grew up. In any sense, one of my favorite designers/bloggers Design*Sponge did a wonderful interview with Coralie Bickford-Smith that you can find here.
