The Craft of Book Binding

Coralie Bickford-Smith—A Series Woman from Gestalten on Vimeo.


We all love reading and we all love books. There is the most simple pleasure in opening a fresh hard-backed book.

We totally fell in love with these series of hard-back books by Penguin's in-house designer Coralie Bickford-Smith. These sumptuous new hardcover editions mark the 70th anniversary of F. Scott Fitzgerald's death. Titles such as Tales of the Jazz Age, The Great Gatsby, This Side of Paradise and The Last Tycoon are all available in store now.

We wanted to share with you this gorgeous little video which was the sole reason we now stock Coralie's books in store! We hope you fall in love with the process and the results of her books as much as we have.
