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.
