Description

Introducing Little Clothbound Classics: irresistible, mini editions of short stories, novellas and essays from the world’s greatest writers, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith.

Celebrating the range and diversity of Penguin Classics, they take us from snowy Japan to springtime Vienna, from haunted New England to a sun-drenched Mediterranean island, and from a game of chess on the ocean to a love story on the moon. Beautifully designed and printed, these collectible editions are bound in colourful, tactile cloth and stamped with foil.

A countess with a card trick; love letters filled with deception; a desperate man with a pistol.’The Queen of Spades’, one of Pushkin’s most popular and chilling stories, is accompanied here by the thrilling ‘Dubrovsky’ and unforgettable ‘Tales of Belkin’.

‘He is the lasting wonder of Russian literature’ – Guardian
