cloth bound

I came across this collection of gorgeous cloth-bound classic novels during a recent shopping excursion at Anthropologie. Designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith for Penguin Classics, each book is decorated with a Victorian-inspired pattern printed directly onto the book cloth. The result is a beautiful object that would enhance any library. I wish I could afford the whole set. According to Design Sponge, Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters are the only retail outlets for these books in the US, but I haven't seen them on Urban Outfitters' website or at any of their stores.


  1. very classic look, I love it too,... but not so match with my room....

  2. These are really good covers and it enriched the book look. I am also going to have cloth bounding for my book as it will keep them save. Thank you for sharing it
