Mary Poppins by P.L Travers
This beautiful hardcover is from Wadsworth Publishing Co Inc and ideally, I would like the entire series in these stunning editions. So pretty!
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
From the first time I read I Capture the Castle, I've been looking for a pretty edition. This one from Bodley Head Children's Books isn't ideal but it's certainly the best I've found so far. Now I just need to decide if I should eventually fork out the $$$ for this of wait for something more to my specific tastes. hmmm
Rebecca by Daphne de Maurier
Ever since I first heard about Rebecca, this is the edition from Orion that I wanted. I think it's absolutely gorgeous! The only problem is it seems to be out of print and I can't find it anywhere. Makes me miserable. This book needs to find a place on my shelves.
The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
I've wanted a hardcover edition of The Hobbit for some time now and there are many pretty editions on the market but I think the one I want most is this lovely copy from HarperCollins.
Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
This is a book that I actually haven't read yet but if any edition is going to inspire me to do so, it's this one from Four Corners Books. Such a beautiful object! And from what I've seen the illustrations inside are beautiful as well. This book will be mine. Sooner or later.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I keep seeing this hilarious P&P edition floating about. I love the vintage inspired pulp fiction cover and the fact that they used Colin Firth's Mr Darcy for inspiration. Brilliant idea, Pulp! The Classics. You did good.
Well that's it for now. There are plenty of other titles I have my greedy little eyes on but these are currently at the top of my list. What pretty books are you currently lusting after?
