As I’ve mentioned many times before on the blog, my best friend, McKenzie, is one of the coolest people I know. One day she comes home with a fancy gold and white book, which she excitedly proclaims is one of the Penguin Classics in the Fitzgerald series that Coralie Bickford-Smith designed. I “ooohed” and “ahhhed” appropriately (as it really was gorgeous), then had to ask: “Who, exactly, is Coralie Bickford-Smith?” (I’m so out of the loop) In that moment, my eyes were opened!
Coralie’s clothbound Penguin (where she works) Classics covers have gotten global attention – for the right reasons. I love all of the beautiful books, and naturally, had to order six (for starters) for The Manor. I cannot wait for them to arrive! They will be a great addition to our Sloane bookcases from Crate and Barrel. Eeps! Anxiously awaiting Amazon boxes.
