Puffin Designer Classics by Penguin

To celebrate the 70th birthday of the Puffin children's books imprint 6 limited edition titles are to be released on the 2nd of September. Limited to 1,000 copies of each title, packaged in a Perspex slipcase, they are available to pre-order now from Amazon at much reduced prices.

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, with cover design by Sir Peter Blake

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl, cover design by Antony Gormley

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, cover design by Lauren Child
Little Women by Louis May Alcott, cover design by Orla Kiely
Treasue Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, cover design by Frank Gehry

Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne, designed by David Adjaye.

Much like the Penguin Designer Classics released to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Penguin Classics imprint these are sure to sell out quickly and become collector's items.

UPDATE: There is now a minisite with some great pictures of these at Puffin.
