  2. Ooh Black beauty has had some nice covers over the years, I think. Great pick! Same with the Narnia books.

    1. Yes, I wish that Narnia book was an actual cover. It is just a poster.

    1. I have never read Scarlet Letter, perhaps that cover will do the trick.

  7. What a lovely collection of covers and I don't think I've seen any of them before! It's amazing how many different covers each book gets.

    1. Especially classics that are published out of so many publishing houses.

  8. They are works of art! I don't think they used to make as much effort on covers, so they were more utilitarian.

  9. These are all such great covers. I don't think I could pick a favorite.

  10. Very interesting covers. I'll have to let them "process" before I decide yea or nay!

  13. Pretty covers for classics are the best, particularly for Jane Austen books! Idk have any of the above ones, but I have a pretty pink waterpaint-esque cover for P&P that I just adore!

  14. I'm fairly certain that I look like that hearts-in-eyes emoji right now just looking at these covers. They're all so beautiful and give me the warm and fuzzies. It took me a minute to get used to those editions of HP but I ended up buying the first two books in that style and I'm a lot more in love with them now that I've seen them in person. Ah. Great picks!

  15. I've seen some really fun and pretty editions of the 'Anne' books, but am not sure if I've seen this one or not. I really like the version that uses the 'A' initial, and then there's a pretty almost watercolor collection that I'm trying to collect. :) Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland last week, Anne.
