Rifle Paper Co. x Puffin in Bloom

anna bond, rifle paper co., beautiful book covers, redesigned covers of classics, rifle paper co puffin books, illustrated by anna bondI’ve professed my love for Rifle Paper Co. many times here on the blog. I just love their aesthetic and pretty much every single item they produce. When I saw that Anna had designed covers for a series of classic books, I just had to share them here. Aren’t they gorgeous?

Last May I made an effort to read more classics. I read The Great Gatsby in anticipation of the movie and I also read Little Women. I’d forgotten how delightful Little Women is and I’m so glad that I reread it. I want to make it a goal of mine to read more classics again this year. There are so many that I haven’t read and I’d like to start tacking my list. I’m not sure yet if I want to dedicate one particular month like I did last time, or maybe aim to read one classic a month for several months?

I’ve also been thinking that I’m going to allow myself to buy pretty editions of the classics that I read. I feel like I’m willing to spend a little extra money for a cover that I love since it’s a classic and I plan to keep it in my collection forever. There’s not a ton of space in my small NYC apartment, but one day I dream of having the space to display all of my books properly. I’m plan to buy the entire Harry Potter series soon too since I’m reading them. I’ve been borrowing them from the library, but I already know that I want to own the books as well!

Tell me: What’s your favorite classic?

(These Puffin in Bloom editions will be available on August 28th!)

  1. OMGGGG. I am obsessed. I had no idea she this happened!! I may have to just purchase them just for the covers (aside from the books being classic and all). DYING!

      I love the movie, but thinking about it now, I don’t think I’ve read the book! I think that means I need to buy this edition :)
