In just over a decade, Penguin’s Clothbound Classics – a series of ornate, clothbound editions of classic novels, thoughtfully and masterfully devised by English designer Coralie Bickford-Smith – have become iconic in the book world. They’ve been photographed on the shelves of celebrities, and are enjoying renewed life on TikTok, where a generation of new readers are discovering Bickford-Smith’s gorgeous, shelf-uplifting books.
