Penguin Decorative Classics

Penguin has always been at the forefront of designing and publishing beautiful books.  Their current line of literary classics designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith are beautiful on their own or as a set.

We sell these books in our online store both as a complete set of the 30 books currently available, as well as a make-your-own set of 10 books, or we can sell as many or as few as you would like.  We also offer a set of the 6 Charles Dickens decorative hardcover books published by Penguin in their own custom box.

These books are inspired by books from the Victorian era, but with a modern twist on the designs.  Nobody else sells these as a set, so we are doing so – you may buy a set of 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 or 32 (soon).  These books make wonderful gifts for weddings, housewarming presents, graduation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc!
