About Mr Boddington's Penguin English Library

Mr Boddington’s Studio is a luxury stationer from Manhattan, where skilled artisans created jacketed premium cotton stock in vintage-y, custom artwork to create this gorgeous series of classic fiction for Penguin. 

In addition to the beautiful covers, they have added a ribbon marker, deckle-edged pages and coloured endpapers. 

These beautiful editions were sold exclusively at Anthropologie (until they went out of print) for less than $20. However, they are currently difficult to find for a decent price, so my best advice is to keep regularly checking second hand options until a copy you can afford pops up. I’ve added links below for Abes and Ebay, which are the most common places you are likely to find them.

(Interesting note: there was a printing error on Jane Eyre, and Emily Brontë is credited as the author instead of Charlotte Brontë on the boards underneath the dust jacket!)
