They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but looking at the beautiful illustrated jackets of Vintage Classics’ new Brontë series, we’ll forgive you for disregarding that epithet for a moment.
Celebrating the bicentenary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth, the publisher has commissioned three new editions of the Brontë sisters’ best-loved novels. Anne’s The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Emily’s Wuthering Heights have been republished alongside Charlotte’s Jane Eyre, which also features a new introduction by Maggie O’Farrell.
British landscape artist Sarah Gillespie has created rather lovely charcoal illustrations for the books – making them a smart addition to your bookcase or a perfect gift for a literary pal. Whether you’re rereading the Brontës or enjoying them for the first time, the engrossing tales of Jane Eyre, Cathy and Heathcliff, and the mysterious new tenant of Wildfell Hall will capture your imagination and stay with you forever.
