I've raved here before about Coralie Bickford-Smith's beautiful covers: especially on the classic thriller and classic adventure covers she did for Penguin.
Well, she's done another set of gorgeous books: unfortunately, they're part of a deal between Penguin and a certain big UK bookselling chain, so aren't available in good bookshops. But we can at least look at them and their beautifully patterned cloth bindings online. And they have ribbon bookmarks. (Click for bigger versions.)
This must be Penguin's 3,884,967th edition of Pride and Prejudice. Of course, only 178 of those are currently in print.
