Ruben Toledo for literature




I am a nut for beautifully designed books and book covers. There's this shop in Dallas, Legacy Books, that is probably one of my favorite places in the universe. Regretfully, I've never purchased a book there because hello, I can buy them for virtually half off on amazon, but I love to go there and touch and smell the books. It's almost creepy. I'm sure I've written about the Penguin Deluxe series before, and here I am again. In love.

Ruben Toledo has illustrated a series of covers for Penguin. And consequently I'm about to purchase my 12th copy of Pride & Prejudice. But first and foremost is Wuthering Heights. I'm desperately in need of a stupidly gushy love story stat!
