Jane Eyre

By Charlotte Bronte

Our Price: $11.00 - $19.80
From Penguin’s designer hardcover classics series. This series reprints books to cherish, collect, and pass on with striking new editions of literature's most beloved books. Designed by graphic design artist Coralie Bickford-Smith, all of the books feature gorgeous patterns stamped on linen cases, colored endpapers, and ribbon markers. These rich and sumptuous volumes will likely be one of the most coveted sets of books ever produced. Bickford-Smith uses conforming grid patterns for the cover designs, imposing a recognizable style that works across the entire series of books. The patterns on the grids convey something of the character of the individual titles. These patterns are signifiers for the book’s character and meaning, bringing contextual complexity to the design. Each title’s design was worked on extensively using the book’s text, mood boards, picture research, and literal patterns to take a slightly new angle on a familiar work. Examples of this can be seen with the peacock feather design on Dorian Gray, which plays on the book’s themes of vanity and the superficial; whereas the leaf motif on Jane Eyre refers directly to the lightning-blasted chestnut tree, a concrete element in the text that serves as a potent symbol of the book’s central relationship.

Jane Eyre

By Charlotte Bronte

Our Price: $13.95
Jane Eyre, the story of a young girl and her passage into adulthood, was an immediate commercial success at the time of its original publication in 1847. Its representation of the underside of domestic life and the hypocrisy behind religious enthusiasm drew both praise and bitter criticism, while Charlotte Brontë's striking expose of poor living conditions for children in charity schools as well as her poignant portrayal of the limitations faced by women who worked as governesses sparked great controversy and social debate. Jane Eyre, Brontë's best-known novel, remains an extraordinary coming-of-age narrative, and one of the great classics of literature.

Villette

By Charlotte Bronte

Our Price: $19.95
Charlotte Brontë's contemporary George Eliot wrote of Villette, "There is something almost preternatural in its power." The deceptive stillness and security of a girlsâ?? school provide the setting for this 1853 novel, Brontëâ??s last. Modelled on Brontëâ??s own experiences as a student and teacher in Brussels, Villette is the sombre but engrossing story of Lucy Snowe, an unmarried Englishwoman making her way in a culture deeply foreign to her. The heroineâ??s relationships with the fiery professor M. Paul, the cool Englishman Dr. John, and the schoolâ??s powerful headmistress, Madame Beck, are described in her compelling and enigmatic first-person narration.This Broadview edition includes a critical introduction by Kate Lawson and Lynn Shakinovsky. The many contextual documents include contemporary writings on surveillance and espionage, anti-Catholicism, and working women, as well as letters describing Brontëâ??s own time in Brussels.
