As many may know from past posts, I am obsessed with Mr. Boddington’s Penguin classics (here is where I lusted over them….here is where I broke down and bought them). Mr. Boddington’s is a New York City stationery studio that designed six gorgeous jackets for classic novels with Penguin, to be sold exclusively at Anthropologie. I love the novels that they chose and the four that I bought really add some serious prettiness to my bookshelf. So, I was absolutely thrilled when the incredibly kind folks over at Penguin sent me Alice in Wonderland and Little Women, the two Mr. Boddington’s editions that I hadn’t bought, to round out my collection! How sweet is that? I’m so pleased to now have the full set…they’re all different, and equally whimsical and wonderful.
And aside from the Mr. Boddington’s books, I am now also the happy owner of an incredibly gorgeous rainbow hued box set of Puffin classics as well, courtesy of the seriously amazingly generous team over at Penguin. The Puffin set includes children’s classics like The Secret Garden, Black Beauty, and Anne of Green Gables – which pleases me to no end, as that was one of my childhood favorites. They fit in perfectly with my colorful bookshelf, and are available at Anthro as well.
