Bookish Things I Like

So despite the internet ban, I did pop online occasionally and I have to share a few links to bookish things I have seen and loved.

 Spineless Classics print entire classics on a single sheet. My favouirte has to be Pride and Prejudice poster, which I adore, but I also love What Katy Did and The Secret Garden 



I'm also loving these posters of children's classics by Christian Jackson, one image evokes the whole tale.  Love the Alice In Wonderland image.

Finally Penguin are doing some great covers at the moment. My Mum sent me the cloth bound version of Pride and Prejudice ~ isn't it gorgeous?



I also love there new classics deluxe ranger, which Abby of Abby's Bookshelf blogged about here. The Jane Eyre one is fabulous and on my wish list!


Finally not especially bookish but so fun I love this site dearphotograph. People put a photo of the past in the same spot in the present ~ it's very cool.

  2. I've been treating myself to one of thhe clothbound classics every payday for the last year. I have a whole bookshelf full now but I'm too afraid to read them in case I damage the beautiful covers!

  5. Julie - Glad you like them :)

    Em - on I'm jealous, what a lovely sight they must be! When I re-read P&P I bet I don;t read the cloth one either, I'll go with the creased paperback :)

    Nic - Me too, they've done a fabulous job!

    Abby -I think I might have to splurge on the poster too :) Glad you liked it
