Wuthering Heights Hardback
by Emily Bronte
Part of the Fine Edition series
'Wuthering Heights' is one of the most powerful stories ever written.
This beautiful clothbound edition is part of a series of readers' best-loved classics published in fine volumes, and produced to the highest standards for under GBP20: making an affordable luxury.
Instead of a dust jacket, the decorated cloth covers have a printed illustration wrapping around the book.
The cover illustration of 'Wuthering Heights' was commissioned from designer Celia Birtwell, the muse of David Hockney and a designer renowned since the 60s for her fabrics which defined the look of the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Paloma Picasso.
This edition of Wuthering Heights also has coloured page tops, decorated endpapers, meticulous line-by-line typesetting and thick acid-free paper are among the elements that differ from standard hardbacks, so these editions embody the virtues of a good book.
The result is quality of design and production that adds to the pleasure of reading and makes each book a desirable object in itself.
The text includes a fascinating insight into Emily Bronte and her novel by her sister, Charlotte, the author of Jane Eyre. For anyone interested in a fine edition of a favourite work, this is an attractive volume for the bookshelf or an authentic and distinctive present.
