Penguin Deluxe Editions

 I've blogged before about my favorite book editions, Penguin Classics Deluxe Editions.  They just released a couple of new deluxe editions and they are some of the true classics in literature, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, and The Scarlett Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

These editions have great graphic art covers with French flaps and rough edges.  They're not hardback, so they're reasonably priced and are still neat collector's items.  Later this year, Penguin is releasing two American classics, Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, which I re-read this summer, and Herman Melville's Moby Dick.  Their cover designs have already been revealed:
