Pre-ordering additions to my Penguin Clothbound Classics collection is the most exciting thing. But what’s more exciting is the fact that you forget when you place preorders, wait months on end, only to be completely surprised when new ones arrive on your doorstep like book fairies.

These really are the most gorgeous books on the market and for sure are a statement piece for home decor. I need a bookshelf just for these books alone. They deserve it.
