clothbound collection. I recently moved and have finally managed to get these books out of their packing boxes, but I now also have room to display them nicely in my lively them in order to show them off in their full glory.
I received my first clothbound book a few years ago and ever since, every birthday or Christmas my collection steadily grows. I was first drawn to them when I spotted them in Waterstones, instantly falling in love with the detailed and beautifully illustrated covers of some of my favourite books.
I have to say I have only re-read Pride and Prejudice in the clothbound version, they just look too pretty and I'm scared of damaging them! But as a collector of books in general anyway I have to say I do enjoy walking into my living room and seeing this gorgeous collection. The prices of these vary quite substantially from when they are first released at £16.99 to them going down to around £11 when they have been out for a few months.
Has anyone else let this collection catch their eye? Do you have any other collections of books you collect?
