We're fans of the beauty past eras brought to book publishing and design, and luckily there are publishers working today with the same passion for quality and detail. This stunning 2 Works series from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is as elegant as antique volumes from previous centuries, but with features befitting the more modern works it includes (Everything Is Illuminated, The Things They Carried). Each volume contains two novels by one author in a hardcover volume decorated with intricate patterns and gilding.
