want it now: penguin classics

paperback

There has been much ado about Penguin’s cloth bound, admittedly beautiful classic hardcover tomes in the blogosphere, but I’m much more interested in their re-released paperbacks . The new covers are colorful, bold and capture the loud spirits housed within the black-and-white text of their pages. All are gorgeous and reminiscent of comic books, graphic novels and fantastic pulp magazines (check out the scandalous cover of Ethan Frome). Pick up a stack for your favorite bookworm’s library. –Katie D.
