The Seasons Editions - Beautiful Die-Cut Classics by Thomas Nelson
This series published by Thomas Nelson includes a selection four of classics released every six months or so starting in 2019, with each book specially chosen to thematically reflect the season in which the main part of the story occurs.
Each book features a detailed laser-cut book jacket designed by Kate Armstrong, that comes protected with a removable plastic jacket (they are supposed to be discarded, but the design is so fine and fragile you are likely to want to keep it it protect from shelf wear and damage).
The books have textured boards in block colors under the jacket, with gold foil stamping on the front cover, spine and a seasonal quote from the book on back cover. The page edges are sprayed to match the boards, and small die cuts also feature on the spine of the dust jackets, so they look really beautiful on the shelf as well.
The endpapers are patterned, and match eight large colored pull-out quotes that decorate the interior. The bindings are smyth-sewn, with coordinating head and tail bands and a ribbon bookmark. (The Summer editions were also issued with a bonus matching laser cut bookmark as well.) Interiors are printed in two colors on heavy weight (105gsm) white paper with drop caps and decorative borders. All books are first editions, and the entire print run is numbered and limited to 10,000 copies.
Disclaimer: I received a review copy of Pride and Prejudice from the publishers. I loved it so much I went out and bought the rest of the set myself.
