Like many of my books, these lovely little paperbacks came courtesy of my fellow book collector and friend Maddie. After spotting them on Emma's feed, I coveted their vintage designs so badly that Maddie finally took pity on me and picked them up while she studied in England this past summer (they're nearly impossible to track down online).
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?).
