Like many of my books, I first spotted these lovely little paperbacks on my friend Emma's feed, and coveted their vintage designs so badly that I enlisted a friend to pick them up for me in England (they're nearly impossible to track down online). A collaboration between WHSmith and Vintage Books, they're easily one of my most picturesque collections.
I adore these editions because of their compact size and (as always) their sprayed edges. Additionally, titles like The Warden and Silas Marner are a nice departure from the age-old tradition of publishing more mainstream classics (Pride and Prejudice anyone?).
