  54. I love the Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest covers!

  55. alicia says:

    Holy crap, these are so much better than the Penguin Classics. I bet these won’t rub off on your fingers!

    Hands down, “Pride and Prejudice” is the most beautiful out of the bunch, but I freaking LOVE-LOVE-LOVE the twist on “Little Women.” It was the first classic I ever read, and the first “real people” film (the one with Kirsten Dunst and Winona Ryder) I could quote from beginning to end. Although “Ethan Frome” isn’t my favorite Edith Wharton novel, the cover is so cheeky you’ve gotta say hello.

  56. These are amazing. I would choose Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, and Fairy Tales πŸ™‚

  57. Trisia says:

    I would love One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Dharma Bums, and Ethan Frome! All of them are gorgeous!

  58. ohmygosh. what beautiful art! i’m in love with jane eyre, pride and prejudice, and i’m also love the fairy tales one, but i’m not sure if that was an option. in which case, dorian gray is purty superdupery, too.

  59. Melanie says:

    It was hard to narrow it down to only three but I love the covers for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Rashomon and Seventeen Other Stories, and Cold Comfort Farm.

  60. Andrea Anzai says:

    I love this giveaway!!
