When cover art is so striking it jumps out at you, it can provide even more motivation to sit down and read. That’s the case with these books from Penguin’s award-winning Drop Caps series, which are absolute musts for the bookworm who also has an eye for design. Each colorful hardback edition of classic and modern masterpieces displays a cleverly designed drop cap for the author’s last name; the individual volumes have their own color, style, and personality. Putting them together on a shelf makes for a stunning sight. Make your own set by simply checking off the boxes of the books you’d like and adding the selection to your cart.
The series is a collaboration between Jessica Hische, a designer and illustrator whose clients include Wes Anderson, Nike, and the New York Times, and Paul Buckley, Penguin’s creative director. We also offer a readymade, complete version of the Drop Caps collection.
