Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights and Charles Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities have impacted countless readers around the world for more than a century, but publisher Thomas Nelson is still finding new ways to appreciate the classics. These two classic novels recently got a winter-themed makeover for the company's "Seasons Edition" collection, and both are currently available on Amazon for $19. There's a catch, though: supplies of both Wuthering Heights and A Tale of Two Cities are limited, and once they're gone, they're gone for good.

Both titles feature a white laser-cut book jacket, created by award-winning designer Kate Armstrong, that is meant to “[invoke] the mood of the season.” The books' exteriors also feature gold-foil stamped text, and when you open the sewn-bound copy, you’ll find white pages with an “accent color” for chapter titles and a decorative border around the title page. And in keeping with the winter theme, each novel has colorful “tip-in” sheets with quotes about the snowy season.

Only 10,000 of these limited editions were made, and each one is numbered. Pride and Prejudice and Little Women were part of the winter series as well, but they’ve already sold out. According to Amazon, there are less than 4000 copies left of A Tale of Two Cities and less than 2000 copies left of Wuthering Heights.
