A Classics list for 21st Century readers

‘A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say’ Italo Calvino

Vintage Classics is home to some of the greatest writers and thinkers from around the world and across the ages. We bring you not just the books you already know and love – books that are a proud part of our legacy – but also those we rediscover and reintroduce; works that still capture imaginations, inspire new perspectives and incite curiosity.

Encompassing novels, children’s classics, poetry, polemics and graphic novels, Vintage Classics is an adventurous, ever-evolving list, curated to reflect the world we all inhabit. We breathe life into our books with bold and radical design, paired with contemporary introductions, so that they can be enjoyed by today’s – and tomorrow’s – readers. Because we believe that the questions of our time can best be understood in conversation with the past.
