for bookcollectors of classic dystopian novels
Join LibraryThing to post.
Yesterday my copies of the new Vintage Classics series were delivered . . . the Handmaid's Tale, 1984 and Brave New World. They're gorgeous. The page edges are red.
- no touchstone for the Orwell book, no matter how I spell or punctuate it. I guess it's not as well known as I thought
- not sure if this is the place to post this, but I'm a bit out of touch with LibraryThing these days
I love the one for "Handmaid's Tale" especially.
That's weird about the Orwell touchstone. I just tried it too, and nada.
The whole search is a bit messed up right now - this the problem with the touchstones.
Interesting covers. Would be interested in seeing the one for Fahrenheit 451.
Oh well, I just decided that these are too good looking to pass on them so they are on their way here...
Really lovely! I'm quite jealous. Though I've been meaning to get The Handmaid's Tale so perhaps I'll spring for it.
>1 Nickelini: And I just ordered two of these, less a week after deciding I need to get rid of half my books. Ooops.
Those are impressive editions. And Nineteen Eighty-Four gets the touchstone for 1984.
