And since a lot of classics covers tend to be sort of drab and stuffy, I especially like it when the cover designers and artists step out of the box a bit.
That being said, here are some of my favorite set designs for Jane Austen's works:
These line drawings from Penguin.
Penguin tends to have the best covers across the board for classics, IMO, and they are continuously coming out with new ones that I just have to have...
Penguin's Clothbound Classics editions.
Again, Penguin has the best. They took the idea of quirky, simplistic covers and made the best of them with these beautifully finished, deluxe versions featuring 2-color repeating motifs.
Random House's Vintage Austen line.
I'm not sure who the cover artist is on these, but I have a friend who makes similar repeating texture/pattern art like this, and I love it. These are a nice blend of classic and quirky, and I'd love to see them in person.
I certainly have more covers I want to show you guys, so keep a lookout for that.
And let me know in the comments what you think of these 3 sets, or if you have any favorite Austen cover designs you'd like to point me in the direction of...
