For me the love of collecting classing novels (and yes not just the joy of collecting but reading) is something that was imprinted unto me from my boyfriend and other people. In London he has so many books that he has collected and talks about them often as if missing a child.
The designs of these old books is so well thought out and elegant, so well done and stands out compared to the typical designs of paper back today. For me Penguin publishing is very important because of the interesting and unique designs it releases its books in the styles of. So this for me is a passion and for many others to collect vintage books with nice designs, something that is limited and special. And such books to me reminds me of when I was young, how many times do you read a book once to only forget it? It is nice then, to revisit the past in this fashion and experience the same thril and sense of advneture , to be swept away from books from the past.
This look was inspired by 60s colorful preppy style.Reading old literatures reminds me of my time as a student.
