I’m thrilled to share that the White’s Books Fine Edition of Sherlock Holmes: His Greatest Cases is now available in the US. Wouldn’t it make a beautiful gift? My dad loves Sherlock Holmes…might have to put that away for Father’s Day. In a few months, you’ll also be able to purchase a White’s Books Fine Edition of Emma — doesn’t it have beautiful cover? Pre-order now by clicking here.
You can also still purchase six of White’s Books Fine Editions published last year:

Apartment Therapy introduced me yesterday to these beautiful books and I thought they looked so pretty I had to share. They are the Fine Editions series published by White’s Books, the new venture of former Penguin designer David Pearson. The books are classic works of literature and the presentation is really fantastic. Leading artists are commissioned to create wrap-around cover designs, which are then printed onto cloth using brass printing blocks. Other features: elegant typesetting, thick acid-free paper, printed end-pages, and a pretty red ribbon to mark your place.
Click on the links to buy:Jane Eyre (Fine Edition), Treasure Island (Fine Edition), Christmas Books: A Christmas Carol and Other Stories (Fine Edition), Sonnets and Poems (Fine Edition) (with illustrations by Petra Börner, Joe McLaren, Stanley Donwood, and David Pearson). Now also available are Wuthering Heights (Fine Edition)and Pride and Prejudice (Fine Edition).

Remember how I posted a few weeks ago about the zombie Pride and Prejudice book by Seth Grahame-Smith coming out? The NY Times has noticed all the chatter about the book too. Check out this article: I Was a Regency Zombie. Perhaps my favorite line: “Holy Northanger Abbey!” LOL.
P.S. The book’s opening line is: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”
P.P.S. If you can believe it, there is also a competing film project in the works, called Pride and Predator. More here.
All you Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice fans will get a chuckle out of this site, particularly if you use Facebook too: http://www.much-ado.net/austenbook/
