They are so adorable and the illustrations are delightful. Helps baby learn while retelling classic stories in literature.

This one is on sale at Book Depository for $7.65!

Other classics include Alice in Wonderland and Jane Eyre.

Time to expand our library!

Virago Modern Classics

These vintage book covers were designed to celebrate the Virago Classics 30th Anniversary from 2008, but I still really enjoy them 🙂 Female textile designers including Orla Kiely, Cath Kidston and Barbara Hulanicki (Biba) helped produce a lovely set of eight hardback modern classics by writers like Barbara Pym, EM Delafield and Jacqueline Susann.

Jessica Claire’s Handmade Book Invitations

I was going to call it a day on blog posts since it’s Friday and the day is almost over but then my friend spotted these amazing book invitations on wedding photographer Jessica Claire’s blog.

Each invitation came in an old hollowed out book. The main invitation piece is held back by a steel grey grosgrain ribbon and is sealed with a copper wax seal with a photo of a lock. Sitting on the left side some nice copper paper pockets from Kate’s Papeterie are the additional invite pieces. Each invite had a different kind of button affixed to it.

A wax lock holds the book together.


Here is also a shot of their save the date which was letterpressed.
