Now, I know they say not to judge a book by its cover, but if you had the choice between the edition of Jane Eyre on the left, or the one on the right, which would you pick?
Personally, I’d pick the one of the right! The other day in Waterstones, my eye was caught by a table of some rather quirky editions of some of the classics – called Penguin Deluxe Editions – amongst which was this amazing copy of Jane Eyre. I’ll admit I pretty much wanted to buy the whole table!
I particularly liked the cute version of Wuthering Heights, and the comic book Frankenstein, and would happily replace my old battered copies of Sense and Sensibility and Dubliners with these far prettier ones! I was also tempted by the Penguin Deluxe Edition of Dante’s Divine Comedy, because I have been meaning to read it for ages, and I have always been interested in Greek Myths, so liked the look of that one too (basically I just wanted them all!)! I love that they all had really thick, quality paper in them, and the covers were beautifully textured.
Has anyone else ever seen these Penguin Deluxe Editions before? I sure hadn’t! I’m seriously considering buying one though, I just can’t decide which one!
