Puffin Designer Classics - Around the World in 80 Days - first look and pictures

This Puffin Designer Classics edition of Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne is designed by architect David Adjaye. I was not really expecting much from this edition, I had not heard of David Adjaye  and the pre-release pictures I had seen did not look very inspiring.

Actually this is really impressive, gold throughout with lovely leaf on the page edges, there is a subtle line that at first looks like a scratch, but is actually a 360 degree journey around the book. I especially like the way it cuts across the pages.
