Fresh & Lovely: book covers

After falling head over heels with my purchase of the freshly re-designed clothbound book, The Secret Garden, I decided to see what other re-designed covers were out there.

I stepped into a whole world of drool-inducing eyecandy.

Check out these gorgeous hand-embroidered covers by Jillian Tamaki.

The embroidery wraps the full cover, and you can check out the rest of the wrap-arounds at Jillian's blog. The books have been officially released for sale and you can grab your own to swoon over at Amazon.

As if there there aren't enough pretty new The Secret Garden covers vying to be my favorite, here's another lovely one design by Ola Pecko. I'm loving the flowers in the shape of the keyhole.

 Then there's the collection by White’s Fine Edition Books that covers classics like Jane Eyre, Sherlock Holmes, and even Wuthering Heights.

I'll admit that cover for Wuthering Heights makes me almost want to pick up that book and try finishing it again.

Coralie Bickford-Smith also has a collection of clothbound classics.


I feel like a new collection will be in the making for me.
