Beautiful Books: Jessica Hische for Barnes & Noble Classics

As both a book lover and a typography nerd, I was thrilled to see that Jessica Hische collaborated with Barnes and Noble to create some stunning book covers for their Leatherbound Classics collection. Her fresh illustrations with vintage flair would make handsome additions to any shelf.

If you don't know Jessica Hische, you have probably seen her work. In addition to designing books, she created Daily Drop Cap, illustrates for magazines, and even did a House Tour with us.

Though I already own most of these titles in clothbound Penguin classics, I have a feeling these will be gracing my living room shelves very shortly. Every room needs a pretty copy of Pride and Prejudice, right?
