Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Pen to Paper. Post about one book per week that has been on your wishlist for some time, or just added (it’s entirely up to you), that you can’t wait to get off the wishlist and onto our shelves.
I have a serious problem: I’m addicted to buying pretty editions of classics, namely ones written by Jane Austen & the Brontë sisters. Unfortunately for my wallet (but fortunately for book lovers everywhere!), Vintage Classics released these gorgeous editions of Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. These editions were released to coincide with the bicentenary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth.
As any lover of classic literature can tell you, there are a multitude of editions of the Brontës’ work, and it’s a real challenge to get noticed. Vintage Classics therefore employed Sarah Gillespie to create covers that were in keeping with the landscape of the Brontës’ novels.
I definitely think they succeeded! The covers are gorgeous monochrome and quite different to a typical Brontë cover. I already own Vintage Classics’ Austen series, and I think despite the difference in cover design, they’ll look quite smart next to one another.
