Summer 2007 Relaunch of Vintage Classics (suite)
Following up on my initial post about the Vintage Classics line being relaunched by Random House UK with all-new cover designs, I am pleased to report that most of them will indeed be available in Canada, starting in September. <sigh of relief> We’ve had the portait of the Queen on our money since like forever, so it was about time that the Commonwealth started pulling its weight. For my American readers, Random House USA has sadly indicated that the new Vintage Classics are ‘not available for sale in the United States’. Boo-hoo. You’ll have to order them from a friendly Canadian bookseller I suppose.
To celebrate our good news north of 49, here are 26 additional cover designs that I’ve managed to dig up ahead of publication. Exposing my bias towards covers featuring illustrations rather than photographs, my six favourite designs from this newly discovered lot are featured immediately below:
For good measure, I’ve thrown in 20 more covers, bringing the total count of designs unearthed prior to publication to 42 (including the original post). Enjoy!
