still collecting...

...classic books with covers designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith.  My mom gave me a few for Christmas last year and I bought two more.  I know everyone seems to be raving about these books, but look at them.  How could you not want them on your shelf?  Plus, I love a good classic and one is always in my reading rotation.  Makes me regret not keeping my high school literature teacher's "100 Great American Classics" list.  I want to read more of them!

And now Ms. Bickford-Smith has designed a lovely F. Scott Fitzgerald collection, perfectly gilded.

  1. I saw a copy of "The Iliad and The Odyssey" at Barnes & Noble that had a GORGEOUS cover. Resisted buying, but it'll most likely end up on my holiday wishlist :-)
