a great book

When you reread a classic, you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than there was before.
- Clifton Fadiman

Pride and Prejudice
makes my heart go pitter patter

I love these clothbound classics designed by Penguin book cover designer Coralie Bickford-Smith.  I want to buy them all, read them (they are the classics after all), and then line them up in a neat row on a bookcase.  Using fabulous natural rough stone bookends on either side of the pretty perfect row. Beautiful!  Browse her website to see them all.

While we are on the subject of Ms. Austen - check out the Etsy shop of Brookish which is devoted to her.  I have ordered a dishtowel or two in my time and have loved reading Darcy's proposal while cooking.  My feelings will not be repressed!
