I pulled this out of a magazine (the now defunct Domino, I think) back in 2008 before I knew anything about Persephone or the Penguin Great Ideas series, or the Art of the Novella series from Melville House. I just thought it was a fantastic page full of…bookish eye candy. I recently unearthed it as I was doing some sorting and was struck by how so much on this page has become a part of my life.
UPDATE: I just noticed when I went to the Melville House link I provided that they are offering all 37 of their novella series at 30% off plus a tote bag. But that still comes to $300. I am so tempted but I can’t figure out if I really want the books or it is just my OCD kicking in.
