  5. Nice! have you seen this current series of hardcovers? (I couldn't find a bigger pic, sorry.)

    I saw them at the British Library (London obviously) and it's a range of hardcover classics bound in cloth, and decorated with the most gorgeous muted colours and patterns. It's been so hard to resist buying them all!
